Wry Fun with Sir Alec
8 March 2005 | by (boston mass. usa) – See all my reviews

I have spent the last weeks researching and viewing noteworthy Alec Guinness performances that i had not previously seen.Over the years, I have found that British humor either has me giggling or leaves me cold.This film I enjoyed very much though I can imagine others finding it boring. It falls into that 'subject talking into camera' category and reminds me of another of that ilk, ' Bed of Lentils', with a bravura performance by Dame Maggie Smith. Well, this one has a bravura performance by Sir Alec Guinness as a recently retired senior judge, grouchy and egotistical.He has decided, this day, to finally, once and for all, find out if his neighbor of forty-odd years is the father of the son he has always believed to be his own. The occasion is the lunchtime visit of that son,Edwin, who has lived away in Canada for many years.The screenplay is terrific; the banter between husband, wife, and neighbor/extended family member - is most perfectly revealing and wryly humorous.The resolution is a lovely kick -in- the- pants.
