: How wonderful! Welcome to the fold, EJ!
: At the risk of sounding sexist, I was surprised when I got to the part where you said "my wife."
: I was fully expecting you to say "my husband!"
: It's so heartening to discover yet another guy who is deeply touched by this film!
This film brings me to tears every time I see it. I think it's the most romantic film ever made. It has all the elements that touch my soul: romance, tragedy, desparate fights against overwhelming odds, a sweeping score (I have a strong weakness for blasting French horns, and Celtic music makes my blood run hot), noble sacrifices, and majestic photography (my God, this country is beautiful!). Throw in strict attention to historical details (uniforms, guns, etc.) and I'm in Heaven.
: (I sometimes find myself thinking that if I could just find a guy who feels the way I do about LOM, I'd have found "the one!")
Well, I am available. ;-)
