A nice little film
23 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Unbecoming Age (1992) aka: The Magic Bubbles Diane Salinger shines in this fantasy/age film and gives the necessary depth to her role as Julia. She has just celebrated her 40th birthday and is so miserable with her life that she wishes she wasn't 40. Her wish comes true and she changes into a person who doesn't remember how old she is; only enjoying life to the full. This of course upsets hubby, but everyone else she endears herself and helps them to enjoy their own lives.

The character of Julia is one you can really get to like; she's a free spirit not hurting anyone. Everyone she has involvement with is touched by her sincerity and childlike innocence. The story revels a lot about the human condition, how we're constrained in our inabilities to just be ourselves and do the things which make us happy.

Finally Julia has to decide between her new self and the wishes of her husband (he wants the old Julia back). 'Unbecoming Age' is a nice little film and should stir up the sentiment, "you're never too old to enjoy life". 7/10
