A surprisingly enjoyable, obscure film
6 September 2004 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie came under the radar for me - I had never heard of it. Turner Classic Movies gave me the chance, as usual, to experience a film I would probably have never watched, otherwise.

"One" is a wonderful period piece, with great acting, and a simple but engaging plot.

Granted, Janet Leigh's crude supporting character is a bit grating - the humor is jarring - but everyone else is cast perfectly.

The San Francisco locale is used effectively, but sparingly.

Interestingly, director Stuart also directed "Willy Wonka" the year before; he certainly knew how to work with actors.
