Worth a look for anyone in the mood for a story about an old man who lives by Dylan Thomas' advice about not going gently into the night.
A gentle story of love and kindness.
Director Vladimir Michalek and writer Jiri Hubac deftly suggest the pathos of old age while avoiding the saccharine and the morbid.
A bittersweet charmer.
A fantastic vehicle for three seasoned actors given the chance to play juicy roles at this stage of their lives.
Though the story line seems grim at times, it's always made lighter by Brodsky's gentle, often hilarious presence.
With its uplifting moral to stay young at heart, Autumn Spring is a bittersweet charmer about rogues, relationships and growing old.
A proud and optimistic testament to the youthful spirit of seniors who refuse to let such a trifle as their failed lives get in the way of a bit of fun.
A sly, wry fable about the refusal to grow old that has poignancy as well as charm.
[A] lovely comedy about old age, marriage, men and women.
A fun movie about and for old people...also happens to be a movie that young people won't be able to resist
Without resorting to schmaltz or sticky pathos, director Vladimir Michalek fashions an allegory about aging, friendship and love that equals the best American movies on those tricky subjects, from Cocoon to On Golden Pond.
This movie is really sad when you find out, and I found out months prior to watching the movie because I do research, that Vladimil Brodsky committed suicide shortly after filming this movie. It makes watching really bittersweet, when you see how this character plays out on screen as someone who just wants to enjoy life by playing pranks on people to feel alive and young again. It's really a great and charming performance, quite frankly the three leads are all great. The story is also really good, seeing how this man's behavior ultimately hurts the person he loves the most. It's very believable to think that this man, who's close to the end of his life, to want to feel young and alive again by doing what he does. It's also believable to see his wife react the way she does. It's just great. And it deals with the death issue in a mature manner, it doesn't feel melodramatic. Overall it's just a really great movie with very funny and touching moments.
