how on earth this got to be so neglected a film that I could pick it up for the price of the postage is beyond me!!
After Baghdad Cafe and Rosalie Goes Shopping Adlon returns to look at the eccentricity of America through his piercing European eyes. this time he is on to the Younger family and their storage unit facility somewhere in mythical magical- realist mid west.
His cast of characters is as eccentric as ever from a Garboesque actress (Sally Kellerman) to a failed monocyclist. A superb supporting performance from voice over Linda Hunt who has herself locked in her storage unit to get on with her writing (we have all been there!!)and outstanding and colourful ones from Donald Sutherland as the ageing lothario, Jonathan Younger, and his put upon wife, Lolita Davidovitch ~ so put upon she dies of a heart attack, but dont despair she returns post mortem and gets gradually more and more glamorous and younger and younger (gettit?) The younger Younger is played by Brendan Fraser who enhances any film he graces.
This is a totally must-see film especially as you can pick it up for less than a bus fare. Hunt it down now, watch it and pass it on.
