Saturday, Sunday, Monday ... Frank Finlay ,.,.Fantastic movie
19 February 2008 | by likretamSee all my reviews

Even tho i watched this TV Movie years ago when the world & i were young, it left an indelible memory of it being oh-so-Real & Moving. It is indeed a realistic Portrayal of Family-Life when they are put together over a weekend.

& this is True-to Life not only of an Italian Family it depicts, but it's situation is Universal ... ... as i can testify since i am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Actually had forgotten the main Actor's name; only remembered Fin-somethin' ... When i Googled, Albert Finney's name kept comin' up. But then i persisted with the title which i remembered went like a week-end -Saturday, Sunday, Monday & VOILLA ~! ... d Beauty of the Internet found this Gem for me ~! : )

Probably a current series near to it cud be : Brothers & Sisters, but Frank Finlay was & still is an astounding Actor ~! NJOY ~!

.... Abi Leong, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA
