The Vow – Movie Review
The Vow is based on a true story about a couple emerging from a car accident, that put the wife in a coma, where she lost her memory about their life together as a couple. She wakes up from her coma to a husband who deeply loves her but is a stranger to her. When they tried to force the memories and relationship, it just could not happen. Eventually, they left each other and the husband was deeply distraught, while the wife tried to renew and rediscover her life, family, and goals. During this process, she came to embrace slowly pieces of her life that she had chosen previously, including her love for art, life in the city, choice of restaurants, and eventually rediscovered her love. When the husband and wife meet after a period of some separation, not to force the previous relationship, but as friends with similar interests and likings, they rediscover love and tenderness built on the same strong chemistry, as before. It is a sweet movie, not quite a tear-jerker, not quite a light comedy, but a romantic movie with a right balance of humor and tender sweet love.
