It is a good story remembering their departed friend as they carry out his last wish. During the travel to disperse the ashes, each remember different times with him and his wife/children. In this time there is discovery of flings and unintended regrets. Very heavy in dialog but a good story. Collapse

All the actors are superb and the direction (by Schepisi) is also very good. Highly recomended for I missed this film when it was released in theaters.

I mean we know that life is NOT a bowl of cherries. Still, it's a rare movie that has the true texture of life's experiences--the memories, betrayals, the joys, and sadness. A melancholy elegy to a generation of friends who lived, loved, drank, remembered together but will all die separately and alone. Expand

We always look forward to seeing a good movie and sometimes leave disappointed. This is one of those rare moments I left with the pleasure of seeing a true classic.

This is one of those rare moments I left with the pleasure of seeing a true classic. A wonderful script, superb cast, excellent cinematography, a movie that uses flashbacks to give the moviegoer a real sense of what frienship is all about. I would urge everyone to see this movie.
