To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a lively film in Cassavetes's usual relaxed style. His films just seem more real than any other director. Any fan of his work will want to see this. I believe it was his last film. I found it hard to get hold of in a format that would work on my equipment, and was glad to get this copy on old VHS. A bit crackly, but fine. I believe it's available as a DVD on the Criterion label, but their DVDs only play, I understand, on American equipment. All the performances are great in this film, and the introduction of the young kid, about half-way through, was a stroke of genius, as it makes the viewer re-assess the behaviour of the chief protagonists. The kid is marvelously acted too.
Deux films au ton juste pour les années 60 pour "UN ENFANT ATTENDS" et 80 pour "LOVE STREAMS". Je me régale toujours de ces deux acteurs. Mais verra t-on un jour Gena Rowlands et Bette Davis dans "STRANGERS".
