I normally don't comment or buy movies but this one tells the story from a unexpected point of view. This not a chick flick. This is a realistic story about love told with humor and heartbreak.

When the relationship is good there are leaves on the trees but when it is bad the leaves fall out and the illustration colors turn a cold gray.
