This sharply scripted study of a bereaved woman who literally wishes her partner back from the grave is an impressive directorial bow by British playwright Anthony Minghella.

Minghella lays on the whimsy a bit thick at times, but his wryly funny and heartfelt observations on sorrow go down much easier than the Hollywood brand of lump-in-the-throat histrionics.

Audience Reviews for Truly Madly Deeply

I heard raves about this movie but I thought it was horrendous. Stagey, saccharine and painfully PC.

Bob Stinson

Super Reviewer

A beautiful and funny romantic drama/comedy about a woman who can't get past the death of her boyfriend, and he comes back as a ghost to help her. I love this movie.

The scenes between Jamie and Nina: ****
The rest: **
