Warm, unique movie.
30 April 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a very unique, very warm movie that made a strong impression on me on many levels. The photography is beautiful and the cast is excellent. Ernest Borgnine and Kim Hunter are treasures and Director Joe Camp III has framed them within a truly wonderful and simple story. These are actors whom I haven't thought about in years, but days after I left the theater I couldn't stop thinking about them. That's pretty much how I felt about the whole thing. This picture has an unusual pace - it's peaceful and it's un-rushed. I hope that a lot of people will have the opportunity to see it. We need more movies like this one.
