The Etruscan Smile stars acclaimed British actor Brian Cox as Rory MacNeil, a rugged old Scotsman who reluctantly leaves his beloved isolated Hebridean island and travels to San Francisco to seek medical treatment. Moving in with his estranged son, Rory sees his life transformed through a newly found bond with his baby grandson.
This movie is a little story. Certainly it doesn't take too much from Brian Cox, but he is the best part of the movie, specially the stuff with his grandson. The relationship with his son is kind of shallow but warm in off. I think is okay with the tone of the movie, but i would have been happy to see a whole movie with that and a bit more of drama between this actors. Lovely cinematography, specially on Vallasay. Nice soundtrack. In conclusion a warm movie for a sunday afternoon.
