*SPOILER* After Erik took off his mask and saw Christine's reaction, when he walked away and screamed,
I wanted to double over and cry. It actually made me feel sick for a moment.
That's what Erik was feeling. God, that was such a heart-wrenching scene.
For me, that was the most emotional scene in the movie...or should I say 'torturous' scene.
Anyway, Charles Dance's performance won over my heart for this film.
I thought Teri Polo was good too. I liked the compassion she felt for Erik.
That's what won me over with her.
