| Willing to Continue the Perfect Marriage Allows It to Be So
As others have said so well, Hume & Jessica as Mr. Sam & Beloved Cora, make this little (but so important) movie to not only entertain the viewers, but to draw them in so closely, they dare not resist 'being' with the characters ... it would not do to simply observe this oh, so true-to-Life tale of true love that therein lasted 57 years; What they shared was so far beyond just "man meets woman" "falls in love" "raise a large family of willingly loving members" "then die" ... for we are invited-nay, demanded, to participate in the activities as well as the beautiful reminiscences relived in soft, vivid, "passionate reverie." ** The family interaction is so real, so wholesome, while being at once highly refined and quite humorous portrayals of our own brothers and sisters, complete with the squabbling, the joint concerns -- even the near neurotic imaginings and over-reactions, that remind us to never, ever simply react, but rather to determinedly intend to live our lives fully, while fully being just who we are -- really, down deep where we recognize how humble, yet proud of our family ties, we all need to be! What more do we live for? ** I absolutely loved this film and have converted it onto DVD so as to be better able to relive those dear moments again and again, as I too approach 57 years with my darling "best friend" and life companion. My parents were together 52 years (the 2nd marriage for mother, the first for dad) and my wife's parents continue in their 63rd very close years together. With examples like these, we wonder why the divorce rate could possibly be at 51% today ... as tragically it is.

SEE IT!! BELIEVE IT!!! LEARN AND LIVE IT!!!! DB
