Moving adaptation of a short story by Alice Munro, starring Julie Christie as Fiona, who has been married to Grant (Gordon Pinsent) for almost 50 years. The couple's commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humor. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. This tendency of Fiona's to make such references, along with her increasingly evident memory loss, creates a tension that is usually brushed off casually by both of them. But as the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Seeing someone close, drift in and out of the reality zone is very hard to live with.
Sometimes they might know you, other times they may not, they live in this mysterious world we often cannot enter, the sad thing is we may be 'hurting' but they feel a comfort zone we cannot understand,.which is why films like this may give us an insight.
The film without question does portray many aspects assosiated with the illness and is treated with sensitive regards.to the victim.
'Julie Christie' ( as 'Flora Anderson') plays a credible and sensitive role as a victim of the illness.
'Gordon Pinsent's' ( as 'Grant Anderson') portrayel as the husband showing the despare and confusion in coming to terms with the loss of his wifes company and even recognition of who he had been to her, in my opinion was brilliant.
I have seen one or two films covering the subject, this is not by way of 'award' nominations nessessarily the best of them, but i'll not take anytthing away from the film, it's a worthwhile and sad watch.
