What a beautiful movie about living life. I love it. The ending is appropriate; I won't say more than that. The only scene I was a little confused about in the movie was his third date, because it seemed to accidentally go well. Overall, the movie is something of a tragic romance.

Only the cast is listed. Nothing else.

Touch it.
Special Features:
Two theatrical trailers.

Theatrical trailer 1 mentions "Songs by Cat Stevens."
The first theatrical trailer is better than the second.
The first has the main song playing.

This movie is charming. I would highly recommend it to everybody who's old enough (teenager and older) to watch it.

Instant Comments:
I love this opening scene.

"I go to funerals."
Smile: "That woman, she took my car!"
That smirk as his first date runs off.

Oooh, but they're *not*. Look. See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some petals. All *kinds* of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world's sorrow comes from people who are *this*, yet allow themselves be treated as *that*.

"So I'll always know where it is."
"Oh Harold... That's wonderful. Go love some more."
