  • It's a small, graceful movie, and one of the beauties of it is imagining moviegoers tromping into Minneapolis' Parkway Theater to see it and -- for a couple of hours, at least -- forgetting their own feelings of loneliness.

  • Burnett has crafted a poignant, utterly believable film out of the most unlikely of set-ups.

  • Stuffed to the gills with kookiness, this Fish tanks.

  • [Burnett] creates a dreamily solid world where in Jones' heroic sweetness can flourish, and Redgrave and Kidder can disappear into their roles with a dazzling, playful intensity.

Audience Reviews for The Annihilation of Fish

  • Jul 12, 2020
    The popular form of love story most usually involves a pair of youngsters, ala Romeo and Juliet. This story simply goes the other way. Both principals are theoretically past it, and furthermore offbeat in the extreme. How can they find each other and then possibly make it work? The lead actors, James Earl Jones and Lynn Redgrave, are old sure hands and drive into the somewhat stilted material with verve, carrying the piece home. Margot Kidder seems content to be along for the ride. Charming.
