Wonderful Movie, Enchanting

A moving film, of those that I like too much, this cinema was a good trip. She would be a "Thelma and Louise" of old age. The story is very different, but the strength of women is similar, the film has several interesting situations. Relationship problems, lives truncated, not yet resolved. But in the end, what is worth, the trip, let's go in that galera !!!!

I've seen a lot of unsold old-age films, now one came with a firm footprint, good to see, the movie with great vitality.

Director: Roger Goldby, makes several mini-series for TV has few long, half that I do not know, between them directed "The Waiting Room" (2007), that still saw. The stars: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero are wonderful, I emphasize Pauline Collins, what perfection, how beautiful, she already made a film that I love "The Quartet" (2012), another highlight is Franco Nero, the whole film, but it is masterful, he did among others "John Wick: A New Day to Kill" (2017), "Django Livre" (2012), "Hard to Kill 2" (1990). And another protagonist and film diva, who deserves a lot of applause is Joan Collins, who made several famous TV series in also among many others "Goodbye Die Early" (1954), "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" (2000). Pauline and Joan, despite their identical surnames, I do not think they are related, but they are English actresses and Franco Nero is Italian.

A glorious film.

I have to say I enjoyed every single moment of this, a truly moving, funny and engaging movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Two actresses I have always admired, both true talents, combining once again to great effect. The pair had worked together many years before in an episode of takes of the unexpected, back then Joan was the star, with Pauline somewhat in her shadow. A similar tale here, but as it goes on you see there's depth to both characters. Some great humour, mostly from Joan, and some heart breaking moments, many from Pauline. I urge you to watch this film. 9/10

Think of your Granny and her friend on a road trip. It's sweet, sad and funny. Worth seeing.

This is a really sweet film. It's like the OAP version of Thelma and Louise.

The film revolves around Helen and Pricilla, played by Joan and Pauline Collins.

Helen is a narcissistic former film star, who was huge back in the 1960's, but since then she's been forgotten, all after she fell apart, and disappeared from the public eye, some years ago. She hasn't accepted the fact that it's over for her, even though when we first meet her, she is being taken out for a trip from an old people's home.

Priscilla's very Mumsie. She is just a likable person. Sadly, her husband treats her like crap, and she is living an albeit comfortable, yet miserable life. She accidentally gets caught up in the old people's trip, and our story begins.

There is also the small, yet memorable part of Alberto, played by Franco Nero. Alberto is an Italian artist who the girls stumble upon, he is kind, and affectionate, and he shows Priscilla just what she might be missing in life.

The chemistry between Joan and Pauline Collins is great, they bounce off each other and each and every interaction feel natural, but what else would you expect from two women who have been acting for over 100 years between them?

There's a lot of talk about how older actors, and especially older actresses, don't get a lot of work anymore. Often because few good parts are written for them. Films like RED, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and the soon to be released Going in Style, should show studio execs that older actors still have something special to offer. No, scrap that, not 'still have', they have something that younger actors don't have, decades of experience. Why would we waste it? It makes no sense.

Back to our film.

Our two friends travel to France to attend the funeral of the director who cast Helen in her first big film role. Along their journey, they discover a few things both about each other, and about themselves. There is a very serious undertone that runs through this film, it has a sadness, that comes with loss, a loss we all feel at some point in our lives. Yet, it still manages to laugh, at itself, at the situation it finds itself in, at life. I've always felt that this is the best way to deal with pain and adversity, so I appreciate the message that this film puts across.

In the loosest sense, this is a road movie, and a charming one at that, with in fact very little time actually spent on the road, but it's hard to describe it as much else. It's a story of self-discovery, and although it may not be perfect, it's well worth a watch.
