Beautiful performances from Melvyn Douglas and Lila Kedrova and thoughtful direction by Lee Grant but this is heavy going.
A quiet, sad, beautiful film that didn't get the attention it deserved when it was premiered in 1980. Kedrova and Douglas are completely convincing as the elderly, working class couple, whose bond still holds. The whole affair is nicely modulated; something of an On Golden Pond from a Jewish immigrant perspective.
