A film inspiring states of soul. Remembering, challenging, giving refuges and precise portraits of near reality, proposing great performances ( except, maybe, sir Anthony Hopkins who, for the first time, was for me surprising revelation of the same recipe for each new role ). Its atmosphere is the best part. The humor and the lovely introduction to a life style of nothing , preserved by the veils of past and noble intentions, perfect home for Oblomov or for new start in life are few sources of interest about this splendid film. For me, a cinnamon flavor movie.
