User Reviews

 
Father-Son drama, comedy and romance and a nice mix of all three
10 August 2020 | by Avidviewer-02847See all my reviews

This is the first major film of English actor James D'Arcy who wrote and directed it, a very nice first film. Liam Neason and his real son Michael Richardson play a father and son whose troubled relationship goes back to the death of the wife and mother of the main characters. It's set in beautiful Tuscany in Italy.

Michael Richardson from the Neason-Richardson-Redgrave dynasty has acting in the blood and does a good job along with the ever great Liam Neason. Other standouts are Lindsey Duncan and Julian Ovenden who is a wonderful singer and actor.

So many films and TV series now are dominated by: sci-fi, horror, thriller, fantasy, animation, paranormal, rom-com, sit-com, reality...and a lot of people have absolutely no interest in them. I'd rather read a book, surf the internet, watch sports...than that stuff.

This is a nice little film especially for those of us still in semi-quarantine.
