A man who comes back as a ghost to assist his grieving wife... it could have been really cheesy, but Rickman and Stevenson pull it off! I loved this movie and I'm not normally into romantic comedies. The comedy is subtle and doesn't dominate the movie. If you're looking for a happy-go-lucky, laugh a minute movie, look elsewhere. Stevenson's tears and grief are very realistic and you truly feel her desperation. Yet, though there is sadness and even the ending is bitter-sweet, you don't leave feeling depressed and there ARE laughs along the way. Rickman and Stevenson's singing scene is tremendous and a must see for all Rickman fans! It is strange to call a movie about a ghost "realistic", but it is. The relationship between the two leads is very realistic and the chemistry is incredible. All in all a charming little flick to watch when you feel like cuddling up and watching a good love story.

Didn't come off as "hokey"...Reviewed byCelebrian65Vote: 8/10
I must give this movie the highest rating. It captures the whole aspect of "Truly Madly Deeply" so well that I cried out loud and have never forgotten it. I have been married for 34.5 years to a man who has been everything - lover, companion, best friend, etc. When I saw this movie we were already on the verge of moving him into a nursing home due to Parkinson's' disease. I was not able to do this for another 2 years. At the time I cried, out loud because I totally understood the sentiment. Now I am in the "moving on" mode and believe me, this is not easy and I simply cannot imagine ever feeling the same way about anyone. But, I am old enough to know that life really does move on. I was so amazed that the writers, directors, actors, captured the entirety of real, deep "in love". If you have never experienced this, do not give up. If you have - well i need say no more. We are a very lucky minority.
Truly Madly Deeply is one of my all time favorite films. My first viewing was over 15 years ago in an art movie house in Northampton, Massachusetts. It wasn't until when I viewed it the second time, somewhat more objectively, that I realized it was a truly intelligent vehicle to address one's grief, no matter what the loss. The stages of grieving are now well known to those in the therapeutic community and beyond, thanks to Helen Kubler-Ross's noted work on death and dying, but this film through its comedic value, excellent writing and acting is one of the few films that gives us a a step-by-step portrayal of these stages, climaxing with Rickman's giving permission to Nina and to all of us who have suffered a loss to let go of the past and begin to truly, madly, deeply live once again.
