Just read your review again Howard, and I really like it. Can't add much more to it, just that I love the ending. And it is really one of those films that is constructed towards a certain conclusion. The whole time I was waiting when things would start to happen for her. When she overhears the beautifully directed conversation about the green ray we were finally there.
BUT, I didn't see the green ray at the end of the film... I think I may not have been paying enough attention, and it happened so quickly. And as the film was shown on TV I couldn't rewind it.
Strange that I hadn't commented on this thread, yet.
