Storyline

It is a surreal fantasy about an eighty-seven-year-old woman (Rosanna Seaborn) whose dream it is to portray the "whole life" of a woman from youth to old age. The story of a woman who never married or experienced love in real life and who at the end of her life, chooses as her vehicle a play set in the nineteenth century to live out this fantasy. She discovers in one hour what it would have been like to have been married for fifty years with all the ups and downs, experiencing motherhood, love, and dealing with infidelity, etc... A fictitious love story between two eighty year olds. Creating a world in which reality and fiction become one in the field of imagination and sometimes spilling far beyond, into the twilight zone.

An amazing accomplishment
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film several times and I still can't understand exactly how Ms. Ustinov managed to pull this off. A movie where everyone - the director, the crew, the cast, even the audience, EVERYONE seems to be in on the joke except the oblivious, eccentric, mean, old-old-old lady who happens to be starring at the center of it, blissfully carrying on in complete assuredness that she can pass playing a 19 year old romantic lead. My friends and I laughed and gasped throughout the entire thing when I first saw it. If only it was long enough to be a full-feature, more people would have been able to see it and the filmmaker would easily be considered one of the most talented and freshest to come along in years. Terrific film.
