I love this movie because it tells about the first love, a beautiful story of two young and different people that they enjoyed all their love and romance while it lasts. Babi was a student and rich person, and Hugo a rebel boy. Babi had funny moments with Hugo and she unintentionally fell in love. It is a real story because the first love isnt forever, the movie tells about Babi and Hugo lived a beautiful moments but the things ending. Also the parents dont want a rebel boyfriend for their daughters. The movie explains that Babi and Hugo fell in love, but he was an impulsive person so Babi decided ending her relationship. Hugo felt very sad because he was alone, without his best friend in an accident and his great love, Babi. Although the problems, this film teaches us to appreciate the moments we have with our friends, family and especially in love
