Maggie Smith Excels in Italy
28 March 2005 | by John BaleSee all my reviews

After a train bombing four survivors find refuge in the villa of wealthy English writer Mrs. Delahunty. The other survivors, an American girl, a British general, and a young German struggle to come to terms with the disaster, as a Police Inspector tries to determine exactly what happened. This most human and moving story is beautifully played out by a superb cast of character actors including surprisingly Ronnie Barker as the general. A far cry from his TV comedy routines. But the standout performance is Maggie Smith as Mrs. Delahunty who after a somewhat dysfunctional life becomes a helper of others. Combining the sensitive performances and witty script, is the sweeping photography of the Italian countryside. This is a film that leaves you uplifted at its conclusion, and its hard to fault it in anyway. Worth a round of applause.
