admirable work
Chance is the best role of Peter Sellers. it is the conclusion that I formulate every occasion I revisit this film. because it is little more than a masterpiece. it is example of impeccable performance and realistic portrait of every day realities. it is a touching parable about innocence and politic, power and wisdom. about hypocrisy. and about kindness. short, one of the magnificent supports for discover the real side of life purpose. bitter and nostalgic, seductive and useful, Being There seems be an open window to yourself. sure, it is easy, maybe necessary, to evoke the genius of Peter Sellers. but it is not exactly only a remarkable performance. it is something who reminds the roles of Chaplin . a form of manifesto. a return to the essential simplicity. and this does Bbeing There an unique film.
