Good acting, yet ending was...
5 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

The movie was good and I was enthralled by the connection between Moore and Dyke. The only problem I had with the film was the ending. The ending is very abrupt when you don't really expect it.

Yet over all it was an intriguing story of two elderly people.
