Truly Madly Deeply (1991)
as Maura's Baby
Critic Reviews for Truly Madly Deeply
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.
As a metaphor for the experience of bereavement, the conceit is over-extended, though Stevenson almost makes it work.
Miss Stevenson, Mr. Rickman and Mr. Maloney, good actors all, work tirelessly on behalf of the insistently gooey and smug material.
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
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.
"You're telling me there are dead people in my living room watching videos?" The scenes between Jamie and Nina: **** The rest: **½
One of the few "Romantic Comedies" that I actually like. It really is rather dark as "romantic comedies" go (perhaps that's why I like it?) but also very sweet and moving.
