Heartbreaking Story of Making Do
6 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young woman tries to be patient and understanding with her fiancé's delay in marrying until he feels financially secure. He has his own problems in what to do with his sweet, but increasingly senile mother. He works as a photographer, taking pictures of weddings and babies when what he really wants is to be a director. Viveca Lindfors is wonderful in her expression of frustration as time passes and her longing for babies of her own increases, all the while watching other people's natural progression through life while her's is at a standstill. Once again, Morris Engel has created a movie in which you feel you are watching real life as it's happening. Modern moviegoers might have a problem with the pacing because it is done in such a naturalistic manner, with small dramatic moments unfolding, but this pace is what makes you stop and consider what the characters are going through.
