early G. Wilder
12 June 2014 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Gene Wilder, right after Producers and Revolution, but just before Willy Wonka. And Margot Kidder (Superman's chick), in her very early days. Wilder is Quackser Fortune, who has a horse manure collection cart in Ireland. They spend an awkward but fun day together, and hit it off right away. Quackser seems a bit "slow", but we quickly learn he is deeper than it appears. Beautiful photography of the Irish countryside along the way. His family wants him to earn an honest but boring living working at "the foundry".

When his own trade is no longer a viable option, he must find another path. Along the way, there are numerous misunderstandings, happy moments, sad moments, and the like. Zazel (Kidder) starts out liking Quackser as a boy toy, but can't quite decide if she REALLY likes him. She strings him along a couple times, and he keeps coming back for more. Not a very deep film, but a fun hour and a half. We don't really learn any life lessons here, but there are worse ways to spend the afternoon than watching Gene Wilder in his early days. Story very similar to Being There, with Peter Sellers. Directed by Waris Hussein, who appears to have been a big shot at BBC.
