This film is excellent sensitivity training for 30-somethings!
19 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

As an (aging) college professor, I am constantly in contact with American youth who think that old folks are "icky, out-of-it, unaware, dull, and boring." And here at last, is a masterful film that demonstrates that some seniors are really young people who happen to be trapped in old bodies. Without spoiling the plot line, let me just say that the lead character in this film brought tears to my eyes with his portrayal of one man's struggle to remain young and vibrant. And also, it was just wonderful to see a story told so well through ACTING and PHOTOGRAPHY without lab-generated special effects. This film's a real gem!
