A Man of No Importance Reviews

  • Mar 05, 2018

    Such a sweet flick about a older man who takes delight in the works of Oscar Wilde, and shares his proclivities, but has never indulged in them. Instead he puts all of his energies and enthusiasm into trying to put on Wilde's plays and befriending all of the people who ride his bus--reading them the poetry of his favorite artist. When he shocks the conservative community with his latest attempt at the staging of Salome, secrets comes out that create tempest that marks a turning point in Alfie's life. A great cast in a film that uses gentle humor when dealing with its subject and Finney shows again what a consummate and charming actor he is.

    Extremely banal, but Rufus Sewell is beautiful.

    A controlled performance by Finney, but you wouldn't expect anything liess from him.
