Two things about the film are frankly remarkable, however: the richness of its imagery and George Burns' understated performance.

A trio of contrasting personalities, the veterans bring both a mischievous wit and a sense of subdued anger to a familiar comic plotline, and the film achieves a rare balance of laughter and compassion.

Though the cast is headed by three fine actors, two of whom, Mr. Burns and Mr. Carney, are also extremely funny men, it never elicits any emotional response more profound than curiosity.

There are laughs, but the prevalent tone is one of discreet compassion, without condescension or sanctimony.
