"I think it was from about the year 2000? It doesn't feel 20 years old and yet . . . at the same time, it does. For those who haven't seen it, Return to Me is about a young woman who receives a heart transplant from a car accident victim, then falls in love with the heart donor's widower. It made me sob a couple times, but mostly happy tears." — reviewed a couple of weeks ago by Nancy the BookfoolI watch very few movies, but this intrigued me when I read her review and got it from my library. Yes, this one did come out in the year 2000, and I now know the places Nancy probably sobbed. I especially noticed the animals, who seemed so tuned in to things:
- The gorilla who placed his hands on the glass with the woman who now had the heart of the woman who trained him earlier in the movie.
- The big dog who kept waiting at the door for the woman he loved, the heart donor who had died after an accident.
