brilliant acting in delightful story
24 November 2016
I recently saw an very good amateur version of this play and was so touched by the story I had to buy the original DVD (also a copy for the friend who took me to the play). In spite of knowing the story I was still deeply touched by the relationships portrayed and yet again ended up in tears (I do not normally cry at films). The fear and confusion as well as more tender moments are seen in the elderly couple and are so beautifully portrayed by the clever scripting and brilliant actors. I loved the setting of the story and some very picturesque scenery. The humour, nostalgia, confusion and stubbornness are all intermingled so it never becomes too heavy. As someone who does not normally enjoy romantic or overly deep stories in films I still found this a very touching yet enjoyable film to watch.
