One of the best and most serious movies I've ever seen. Robert Carlyle is really fantastic; it was so difficult to play such a difficult part and he did deliver a stunning performance. It's unbelievable how this picture depicts the tragedy of a person hit by this terrible illness. No commonplace in the whole film, a description of an average life of an average man (actually an average couple) destroyed by Multiple Sclerosis. Congratulations to the director for dealing with a dramatic subject in a very intelligent way, showing how hard it is to find the strength to carry on in those situations, but without ending up with pitying the sick person. Everything is amazingly real, even the long sex scene at the beginning of the love affair that will eventually turn into an everlasting love story. Of course I do highly recommend this movie.
