Truly, Madly, Deeply


(out of 5)

Wonderful film that comes off as the British answer to Ghost, only with more intelligence and warmth.  is marvelous as a woman who loses the love of her life () when he dies in an accident, then is quite surprised when he returns to their home to keep her company. At first she’s a bit startled, particularly when he brings other ghosts over for dinner, but eventually she realizes that she is happy to have him around considering all the rats have disappeared and she feels safer close to him. It has a healthy share of comedy, but the underlying emotion is lyrical romance and Anthony Minghella’s sensitive direction keeps it all fresh the whole time. You will truly, madly and deeply fall in love with this film.
