a beautiful film version of one the greatest plays of the XX century
14 December 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The movie is a beautiful film version of one the greatest plays of the XX century, by one of its greatest dramatists, with three incredible performances. Its South African location allows us to see the real house and village (New Bethesda) where the artist who is the main character of the play actually lived. And we see her art work too. Yvonne Bryceland and Kathy Bates are perfect. And Marius, of course, needed Athol Fugard himself to play in that role. The whole movie (much as the play) is a wonderful chance for Y. Bryceland to remain in the hearts of those who watch the movie (or read the play): the play was written for her by Fugard, as a great gesture of love, when she was already doomed... It was love for her and for the theater. Love and color and trust are three of its main themes... This is a really memorable movie. It is a pity that it is not redistributed in DVD or in VHS.
