Made as part of a project to record 19 of Samuel Beckett's theater pieces on film its also an effort to make the film as something more than simply a filmed record of a stage play. The plot, if you could call it that is simple : A reader reads from a book to a listener who is the same person. What on stage would required twins or two near twins in build and dress, is done here with movie magic and acting magic by Irons. The meaning of it all is up the viewer, personally, like most Beckett's work, I find it devoid of any meaning or purpose, but here in the hands of a master film maker we have a film of great visceral power that becomes something other than Beckett's over blown text.
