Directed by Anthony Minghella
Juliet Stevenson, Alan Rickman
A grief-stricken woman is stunned by the return of her late boyfriend in this touching, funny and brilliantly acted fable.
Nina: You're probably a figment of my imagination.
What would happen if someone who was, unquestionably, irretrievably lost, returned to you?
Jamie died unexpectedly while undergoing a minor medical procedure, leaving his lover bereft and adrift. One day, she turns around to find him there, in the apartment they shared. They can embrace, talk, and love each other again. He is no longer living, mind you, which means he's always cold and keeps messing with the thermostat, and his dead friends are constantly coming over to watch old videos, but it’s Jamie, and he’s back, and they love each other and that’s what counts.
The ever-droll, often sexy Alan Rickman plays Jamie, and the perpetually underrated Juliet Stephenson, in a role writer-director Anthony Minghella ("The Talented Mr. Ripley") wrote for her, is amazing as a woman struggling first with grief, then with the consequences of not moving on with her life. Truly Madly Deeply is a comic and heartfelt examination of what it means to love, and to lose.
