The fear of leaving things behind
It begins a bit unstable and with some wooden acting but once the story gets going it's heartwarming and well-written. The chemistry between the two lead actors is good and it contains some strong memorable scenes here and there. At times it can get too melodramatic but fortunately those are few. It's a solid, well-written, well-acted movie about age problems. Even though this is about a man entering his sixties, and tries to deal with the fact that he's getting old, I think younger persons can find something useful in this too. After all, there are many age crisis in life and if you go beneath the surface they're all about the same thing. The fear that you haven't done all you should have, and the fear of leaving things behind. It's not a perfect ten, but it's a darn good movie!
