The film has an interesting beginning and introduces promising characters and a promising theme. Alas, very quickly things start to fall apart. Characters are introduced and dispensed with, having served no real purpose. One character who, unfortunately, is present throughout the film serves mostly to irritate us and the film's other characters. One wonders why anyone would put up with her for an extended period of weeks, months, or years when we don't want to see her for 2 hours. What was the man dressed like an accountant doing in this film? Why was an illness introduced clumsily? I wish I had seen the play so that I could see what went wrong in the translation to film (assuming that the play was good enough to warrant film treatment). I did watch the entire film, but I wish I hadn't. I do think the film should be seen by all college and university film majors as a lesson in what not to do. This one is a real mess.
