My husband and I watched this early on in our marriage (mid-1990's). We both sobbed and were so moved by it that I was never even allowed to say the words Truly Madly Deeply to him. My husband, who was a musician, died in 2009. In retrospect the film feels prophetic to me. I am remarried now but still carry this movie with me.
He was a phenomenal jazz guitarist, poetic and resonant. He passed away from lymphoma in August 2009 after releasing only three of his own albums. The last album Ripples featuring Scott and Bob Rodriguez is a gorgeous jazz piano and guitar album of Scott's tunes written after he his first lymphoma diagnosis. This is a musician who deserves to be heard and whose life was tragically cut short.
