A great duo!
8 May 2001 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Unique and talented movie explores a delicate situation of two old men (Olivier and Gleason, marvelous all the way!)who discover they loved the same woman during all of their lives. A ordinary stuff? Maybe, but the woman in question was married for more than thirty years with one of them. The story line of this movie is just a long, witty and fascinating dialogue between two great actors, Olivier and Gleason, at a table bar. A great tragedy and drama actor and a notable comedian playing together. A strange and unexpected pair? At first sight, yes, but... what a great duo!
