While this slight Canadian film has limited appeal for general audiences, seniors and families affected by Alzheimer's will find much to identify with.

Hits the high notes even though the tone of sorrow and frustration does not vary.

For those who thought "Amour" too sadistic or the recent "Unfinished Song" too sentimental, here's a senior love story with the realities of aging that falls right in the middle.

At its best, Still Mine gives off that feeling that we're watching something private, something genuine between two people who absolutely adore each other and have for decades.

"Still Mine" is uplifting and heartbreaking, a contradiction that results in the viewer exalting and being let down at the same time.

The bond between Craig and Irene is beautifully illuminated by McGowan's script and by acting that feels rich and real.

The poignancy is somewhat predictable, but still tenderly moving and dignified . . . James Cromwell gives his familiar character considerable gravitas.

Bujold amply conveys Irene's longing for Craig in deep-toned ways that one almost never sees in movies about people over the age of 70. Actually, you rarely see it in movies about people of any age anymore.

What would otherwise have been be a rather banal David-Goliath story ... is elevated by Cromwell into something more weighty, and even existentially profound.

If last year's searing old-age tragedy, "Amour" - or 2006's bravely blunt "Away From Her" - weren't digestible enough for you, perhaps this mild romance will suffice.
