I must say I enjoyed this movie and I was taken by it from the first moments. It is full of wonderful characters and interesting acting. It was not replete with name actors and formula plots.
The quiet moments when the characters waxed philosophical were the best parts of the movie. It was a script that I could put my spiritual teeth in.
At first it was distracting to see Redgrave sitting among her "lessers" but as her role continued...I realized why she took the role. It spoke volumes about the central premise of fate and free will and added much to the film's story line. Plus, she delivered a marvelous performance.
(It always fascinates me when someone states that THIS is the worst movie they have ever seen. To say that about THIS movie reveals that the reviewer has not seen many movies. I have seen some alarmingly bad movies where I am cringing throughout. That is bad folks. This is not Shakespeare nor Gone With The Wind...instead...it is charming.)
Deja-vu was wonderful...a romantic movie for woman and men :)
