100 Word Review – Truly Madly Deeply (1990)

Despite the absence of Whoopi Goldberg, this film is a billion times better than Ghost.

Nina (Juliet Stevenson) and Jamie (Alan Rickman) are in love, completely and utterly. When Jamie dies, Nina expects to be haunted by him, but perhaps not literally.

Written and directed by Oscar winning Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, The Talented Mr Ripley), this is one of those films that will stick with you.  Minghella wrote the film specifically for Stevenson and there is no doubt without her and Rickman’s tremendous performances there would not be a film.

It is full of heartbreak, humour and hope.
