Wonderful end of the story, and in particular the appointment of its implementation is so good that just for the sake of this you can see this movie. But to do so not worth it. In this picture, beginning and ending at the wonderful music of Antonio Vivaldi, a lot of other advantages. Excellent musical component, which sounds only when it can make a certain elation. In other cases, it may even seem strange, we are deprived of the sound of music in the background, making dramatic scenes look only more powerful. Actor's performance in the film is so delicious and natural, with the result that what is happening is not what you believe, it is impossible to not believe.

Did the Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, the circumstances that one, at the time, has recently gone through a divorce, and the other, at the time of filming, waiting for the child, but somehow amazing job these actors can be considered one of the best in their careers.

Robert Benton, director of the film, too, not just so honored critical praise. The entire film is placed in exactly the way it would like to see the audience. The director knows where and how to focus, what techniques you can beat the development of the plot, which is only the scene with breakfast, and morning rise. Given that most of the film consists of not much related to individual episodes, it was very difficult to keep the viewer on the same wave of emotion and tension. But Benton not only coped with this, but also has not forgotten about the pile of seemingly little things that were very important. Another interesting approach director. It was noticeable that he has permitted the actors freedom of action, which will undoubtedly benefit the painting went. Moreover, one of the most successful scenes, namely ice cream, was completely improvised, and the director is able to successfully beat. Two awards Robert Benton as a director and screenwriter got a reason. But of course, was deservedly named the best the entire film, in 1980.
