    Some Love Doesn't Stay For Good

    I didn't read the novel, but I watched this movie which is based on a novel with the same title. We could learn from the movie that it is possible that the love between man and woman might be gone one day. The ironic part is when we think that our relationship is just fine, it is not. It is sad that if we still love someone, but the someone doesn't love us anymore and choose another person ... A happy family. Just a decent family. Is it too impossible for some people to have it? Not a kind of a family described by any sugar-coated love story ... Just a normal family consists of a decent man, a very ordinary woman with some kids ... I like Linda, the main character in the movie. She forgives and forgets, but she doesn't allow herself to get hurt anymore by the same man for the second time. She stands up for herself and her loved ones and behind her courage, there's her mother as a source of her strenght.
