    This is one of my all-time favorites, easily in my Top 10 if somebody can even quantify such a thing. It's a testament to how much Leo McCarey cared about people that you're able to understand the viewpoint of every character in the film, even if you don't always sympathize with them. Even though it's an incredibly sad film, it's also a thing of beauty, something with a lot of love to give. The final act, when Bark and Lucy decide to "pretend there aren't any facts to face" and spend what might be their last few hours together revisiting their old honeymoon spots, is absolutely beautiful and, strange as it may seem, cements this as one of the greatest love stories in all of cinema. 5 years 6 months ago

    I watched this film, Ozu's "Tokyo Story", and 2008's "Cherry Blossoms" within a short period of time - all of them are related in subject matter and story and all of them are phenomenal. These films are required viewing for anyone who will grow old or anyone who has parents. 10 years 8 months ago
