When a Man Loves a Woman

126' - 1994 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Vietnamese, English
Director: Luis Mandoki Composer: Zbigniew Preisner With: Meg Ryan, Andy Garcia, Ellen Burstyn
Alice and Michael Green have the most extraordinary romance. Their marriage is filled with genuine passion, caring and sharing, and together they are raising two beautiful young daughters. They have created a picture-perfect family. However, beneath the surface of their loving relationship simmers a painful personal secret Alice has been keeping, not only from her loved ones, but also for herself. Eventually this problem becomes an overwhelming crisis which tears at the fabric of their tightly-knit family - and that fabric eventually rips wide open and shatters their idyllic world.
