Two aging spinster sisters have their peaceable Cornwall existence disrupted in 1936 when they take a young Polish violinist into their care. After a particularly violent storm, Ursula and Janet Widington awake to find young man Andrea half-drowned and badly injured on the beach. They slowly discover that he is a Polish Jew with a gift for music as an accomplished violinist, hoping to find his way to America. But the village isn't used to visitors and everyone, with the exception of the sisters, is full of suspicions, especially when Andrea develops a friendship with a beautiful Russian woman vacationing nearby. Eventually, the two must make a choice between trying to keep their new charge for themselves or setting him free in the world.
Supposedly sent from USA - but I received this in a package marked from Jersey (Channel Islands) ! Comprend qui peut !! Received fairly rapidly and in good condition. Slow-moving but well-acted film - but with unneccessary third party interference from another Lady who I didn't appreciate at all ! The best thing are the performances of Judi Dench and Maggie Smith - Excellent !
lovely film for those that enjoy film at its best the relationship between the two sisters is a joy to watch , Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie smith are magical together, I wish I had watched it years ago. a great film for a relaxing two hours.
