This is one of the best movies ever made. It is a classic in my mind of a man lost and found through tragic situations. It is funny but has that edge of serious nature to it. Love affair with coming of age twist. A must see if you like to go down memory lane.

Wistful & melancholy

I enjoyed this film more than I expected to because Mark Harmon was better than I anticipated. The soundtrack is nostalgic and the flashbacks are well constructed. The film struggles a little towards the end but the scene of Katie (Jodie Foster) lying in the hammock looking wistfully out to sea lingers on the retina and mind when I close my eyes.

It's quite a sad film, Katie's capri... read more

Wistful & melancholy

“I enjoyed this film more than I expected to because Mark Harmon was better than I anticipated. The soundtrack is nostalgic and the flashbacks are well constructed. The film struggles a little towards the end but the scene of Katie (Jodie Foster) lying in the hammock looking wistfully out to sea lingers on the retina and mind when I close my eyes.

It's quite a sad film, Katie's capriciousness would never allow her to settle down with a suitable man and that meant only one thing ultimately for her; heartbreak. Just like in life; the dynamic component needs a stable support or it spins itself apart and self-destructs.” read more
