Truthful film.
31 December 1998 | by Jack-125See all my reviews

This is a truthful, careful, real film. Deeply satisfying; wonderful to watch. Danner is the best - simply the best. The story, unique though it is, is the universal story about the depth of grief. The director is very careful, very attentive to the detail of the times and of the characters. A 10 for sure.
