90's child in search of his mother's past
2 April 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Beautifully shot film about a nostalgic journey of the 60's past and current generation. Susan Anspach is excellent, and the movie is a gem with great potential. It's a metaphor rather than the usual story film. Played in Scandinavian film festival to tearful audience.

A gem!
