One of the best of the genre
25 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

If a movie should be judged against other films of its genre, then this is one of the best. If you like "new agey" fantasy stories along the lines of "What Dreams May Come" and "Somewhere in Times," you really need to see "Milo".

Finney plays the role he was born to play--in fact he's been playing this role all his life. He's the aging rogue, this time with an Archie Bunker New York accent. He's rather over-the-top, but that's a good thing in this context. Briget Fonda's character is also over-the-top, but oddly believable in this very unbelievable fantasy.

Although low-budget, the film is masterfully acted and edited. The music (simple guitar work mostly) is perfect for the sentimentality evoked.
