    the movie was smoooooth. but the movie watcher must read the reviews to discover whether the gumshoe an d the executive are brothers (are they?) or are they merely children in wwII who grew up., what about the fact that one of them watched a wwII civilian on the way to be rescued. the sound of langella's voice is like a melody and girlfriend is out of the 1940's voice, not enough clues to fully understand the movied. but nothwistanding i like it. jlf006

    This is an extraordinary movie and I don't understand the reviews. Most artfully done. A psychological meditation exploring mortality. The kind of movie you leave and need to see again, a very complex film. In other words, real art, open to differing interpretations. I wish I could be more articulate but just saw it and my wife and I are blown away. Beautiful film. It seems the critics had seen too many movies and missed the point. It's not a thriller. It's a character study, superbly done
