| A Much Overlooked Movie
A well-cast movie that shows Gene Hackman (Ned)- and especially Rip Torn (Will) - portraying believable Americans in a believable situation in Tunisia. As Americans we tend to suppress our emotions and ignore the deep feelings of our children. I was very moved by this film. Rip Torn's talk with Gene Hackman about the grief and feelings of Henry Thomas (Andrew), and how Hackman has misunderstood Andrew's grief and his behavior, shows some especially fine acting by Mr. Torn.

Definitely see the movie. A 9 out of 10.
