This is cinematographer Sven Nykvist's final film. The Swedish cameraman who was made legendary through his collaboration with Ingmar Bergman was already at the time of shooting suffering from Alzheimer's disease. See more »
So what went wrong?
Well, Max has his faults. There were many women to whom he was not, shall we say, indifferent.
But you knew that, I mean, you knew that.
I thought it would pass. I think it's a sad loss that men have such an aptitude for love coupled with such an inability for managing it properly.

It's funny that these sort of films used to be the mainstream back in the 30s and 40s. Now they're the "small" films. First of all, I can't believe they got this cast together.Even the smallest parts have great people in them. And the camera loves few women like it loves Polly Walker. This is a film for adults. Spader's character is a book editor and the film concerns how to keep love going as you get older. Geez, no wonder it's not mainstream.
