Just beautiful. Nothing happens in this movie, is just the simple life of old people living old lifes enjoying the little things that still happening in their days. Lillian Gish is just amazing in here, and her expression face in the "window gift" part is so genuine that could put you in tears, this in a movie where nothing happens, like in the sisters lifes. Really Really Beautiful
