Very good, well directed and the acting was convincing. A risky subject matter that will not be to the liking of many viewers as it deals with feelings brought about by depression and coping with life after bereavement. Well worth keeping for the dvd collection. One of Bertolucci's finest.
I haven't seen this film since it played here in Vancouver in 1979, when I fell in love with it. This DVD version revived my feelings. The story was very daring for its day, and still is. The photography is magnificent. And then there is Jill Clayburgh. Her performance here rivals the one she gave in "An Unmarried Woman". Bertolucci created a stir with "Last Tango In Paris" and kept things going with this film. This isn't just a movie, it's art on celluloid. Don't miss it.
