One needs to view this movie in the same way you would handle a precious flower, with great tenderness, care and attention. It’s perfectly possible for one to allow this picture to be destroyed by expecting too much. It’s an incredibly subtle, and ultimately sad, depiction of family life and the human condition. It doesn’t need to be repeated that this is one of the finest movies ever made, but, in case of any confusion, it really is magnificent. It’s the kind of movie that cannot date, it’s subject will still be relevant in any period of time and herein lies it’s greatness.
