After being dazzled by A New Leaf, I had to see another romantic comedy with Walter Matthau. But this isn't anything like that. More depressing than a tragedy (I like those), this is a "Grief Movie". If that sounds appealing, you can see this in widescreen on YouTube.
**1/2. Classic romantic drama from Hollywood but with great actors. Walter Matthau and Carol Burnett's performances have to be praised here. Not the peak of Martin Ritt's career but still way above water.
A bit romance, a bit drama, a bit comedy; all mixed-up. And despite both characters aren't sympathic they make you to look at them benevolently. Strangely there is always some kind of sadness all around, even in the funny moments. And sometimes you see yourself...Great acting performances; Walter Matthau & Carol Burnett doing extremely fine. 3,5 stars.
