| Excellent bitter-sweet romance
I wasn't even aware of this 30-year-old US TV film from HBO until it was aired recently on the Movie Channel in the UK. I am so delighted to have discovered this bitter-sweet romance, it is an absolute gem.

It is a tale very well told, of renewed comradeship, of rediscovered romance, of tension and understanding between the generations. The emotions are real, the performances superb, especially Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr, who bring a special something to this understated but well-nigh perfect script. The rest of the American and British cast are excellent too, but I thought the standout performance was that of Judi Trott as the idealistic teenage granddaughter.

This film satisfies on so many levels, and I shall be watching my recording of it again, I know. Highly recommended.
