Lovely story - eventually! — 2 years ago


The cover of this DVD is rather misleading, since it looks as if this film is going to be a light comedy. Since Steve Martin stars, and the plot blurb doesn’t suggest otherwise, that’s what we assumed.

There are one or two amusing scenes in the middle of the movie, but the first section is – basically – one tragedy after another, with adultery, poverty, drug addiction, burglary, blackmail… and towards the end there’s a somewhat unpleasant court case.

However, it’s an excellent film. Steve Martin is superb in the role of Michael who seems to have lost everything until little Mathilda walks into his life, and the supporting cast are believable too. Very nicely done with a thought-provoking plot.
