Put aside your expectatives if by any minute you thought cast including James Mason, Hardy Krüger and Melina Mercouri would suggest this is a nice movie. Just forget it and be prepared to watch the most silly, bore, useless and going-nowhere film. Even the fact that it was filmed in Catalonia's Costa Brava (Cadaqués) is a blouf. Nor a beautiful landscape could help this to become even passable. Any story to script about it -although both director and writer of the original book (Henri François Rey - Les pianos méchaniques) did cooperate in the script! James Mason is totally wasted and Hardy Krüger plays a totally silly role; only Melina Mercouri and the boy playing James Mason's son have a minimal script to work with. Do not waste your time watching this. For those who may be interested, director Juan Antonio Bardem is actor Javier Bardem's uncle.
