I saw this movie in Auckland New Zealand around 1980 and went to the cinema to see it 3+ times - taking all my friends with me. The third time the cinema owner came to the screening to announce that with this film his cinema had finally broken even in takings. It was a huge hit with the NZ art-house audience and is still one of my all-time favourite films that changed the way I saw movies and life.
I loved the magic mixed in with the ordinariness of the lives of the two middle-aged protagonists who found a new future by taking a risk on their own abilities. Poignant and with a gentle almost ironic humour you begin to want this easily fooled couple to win the game of life as it were. Watch it.
