Great Little Movie
7 October 2007 | by joseph-lavezzoSee all my reviews

Like many others, I only saw this movie once on TV one Saturday afternoon, many years ago, but I think it is one on the most realistic and endearing movies I have ever seen. Some scenes and the narration have stayed with me for a long long time. It is short, in black and white and, if I remember correctly, only two lines of dialog from the characters in one scene near the end, but it is narrated throughout with near perfection. The story is told mostly from the man's perspective, but the movie also shows the woman's perception of the marriage, and the phases her husband is going through. By the end of this movie, you will know these people, you will feel for them, and you will see a bit of them in yourself.
