Very real characters that draw you into their lives. Moves from a romance to a couple dealing with the illness of their daughter and how the two of them manage their feelings. The film has a very spiritual overtone with the music and the character development. She, moves towards a more mystical view of life while he struggles with his beliefs that there is no God and no afterlife. But the film does a nice job respecting the characters and letting them play out their growth in very believable and approachabl

This was a good movie. I would give it 6 stars if I could. This is a very realistic story, of a very tragic and beautiful couple in Belgium. But, the Ballad of Alabama & Monroe will certainly leave you believing in love, at its core. And then bring you right back into reality. I will have to come back to this movie, but I will have to give it some time, to let my heart strings heal.

I would advise not watching this movie with your significant other. It will bring about tough questions that you probably rather not deal with during romantic evening at home. :-) I watched it alone and was truly moved by the performances and great music that underpinned every gut wrenching turn of the story.
