    Here is the most passionate and tender love story in many years, so touching because it is not about a story, not about stars, not about a plot, not about sex, not about nudity, but about LOVE itself.
  2. If there's a more passionate love story out there, then I haven't had the privilege of seeing it.
  3. A beautiful, almost defiant film on an unusual subject: love among the elderly.
  4. Like an impressionist painting. Scrutinize it closely, and the details don't make sense individually. Step back from it to study the big picture, and it will make a sweeping effect.
  5. 70
    A beautifully acted, intensely felt story.
  6. 70
    A sweet but labored love story.
  7. 40
    It's all so overdetermined -- each encounter of the present-day lovers mirrors some moment from the long-ago day when they parted -- that it reduces their whole affair to a matter of last-minute revisionism.

    This is a beautiful film for all ages. The flashing back and forth between the young lovers and themselves as seniors is done tastefully and This is a beautiful film for all ages. The flashing back and forth between the young lovers and themselves as seniors is done tastefully and emotionally. The husband is played passionately and understandably. It would ruin the experience to say more. Thanks to the writer/director/camera operator/actors. A wonderful film about love. I would have given it 10, but I remain unsettled about one or two questions, which I feel should have been clearly answered and were not. Expand
