"Wow! Finally an all region DVD with a behind the scenes documentary, interviews with the cast and crew, featuring Faye Dunaway, Laren Holly, and others; 30 minutes of deleted scenes, an outake reel, the theatrical trailer, and 2 complete documentaries; "One Woman's Story", & "A Positive Image". As for the movie: Director Martin Guigui portrays a "Robert Altman" like world of eccentric and soulful behavior, by tastefully utilizing the inevitable pains of facing cancer head on and opening a window full of hope and desire to live each day to the fullest. Edie McClurg is wonderful in her portrayal of the kind hearted Nurse with perpetual intent to help her patients to no avail. The characters of the Baptist women, led by veteran actress Janet Carol, serve up great comic relief. Cool cameos by musicians Earl Scruggs, Randy Scruggs and Rita Coolidge. Artistic cinematography. This is simply a beautiful film.
A Surprisingly Excellent, Meaningful Film

"I am a fan of the actor Ian Somerhalder, so that is the main reason I purchased this DVD. I went into my viewing experience with average expectations, and I was surprised by the quality of the acting across the board, the humor, and the emotional depth of the story. And more than just a captivating story, it carries a message about the value of every moment in life. The cinematic quality of the film is not outstanding--it is on par with the technical quality of many "made-for-TV" films. However, its message struck me deeply and left an impact on me--and in my mind, that is the highest goal of all art! I highly recommend this film."

"I first rented this movie from Netflix and loved it so bought. This 96 minute version is the newer one and has one of the best scenes cut. The editing is not as good as you find in most youtube videos, but I loved the movie so much I went hunting for the older 93 minute version. Finally found it and if you go looking the cover it NOT this cover. It is the one with 3 scenes on it, not this one with 4. It is well worth the hunt if you enjoyed this movie as much as I do. Ian Somerhalder is excellent in it, in fact the whole cast is great, but Ian is the reason I rented it in the first place."
