Wonderful, wise, sly comedy/drama about life, aging and being oneself
14 July 2010 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Sweet, simple, moving, funny, well acted French film of old woman 'finding' herself after her husband's death, and the struggle her family has in accepting and dealing with the new her.

Quietly subversive, it's based on a story by Brecht.

While we're set up to expect a tragic tale of an old woman widowed and alone, instead we're treated to a wonderfully life affirming saga of how it's never too late to change, to grow, and to become young in spirit.

Great theme song, too.

The saddest thing is that such a wonderful (and well loved) film is so hard to find. This best I've been able to do is a truly bad quality VHS tape from some years back. This minor classic is worthy of far better.
