  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Perfect Strangers

    One of my favourite films. I love everything about it, so it's no use just picking a couple of points to talk about in this review. Believable characters in a very real and common story of developing your character whilst separated during war time. This is the story of my grandparents. Two people who thought they knew each other, but each grew into themselves in separate environments. A masterpiece.
