Critic Reviews for Autumn Spring
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.
Director Vladimir Michalek and writer Jiri Hubac deftly suggest the pathos of old age while avoiding the saccharine and the morbid.
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.
Audience Reviews for Autumn Spring
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.
The story was beautiful and it had some funny moments in the movie. The main character was kind of annoying though. Also it can be very slow in the first half of it.
a great exploration of death and old age, with a light heart but not trying too hard. and I love cute old people.
