Autumn Hearts: A New Beginning

Autumn Hearts: A New Beginning.
This is a beautifully poignant film. The phrase "beautifully poignant" is appropriate for part of the glory of the film is the sadness expressed by all the characters: three generations of people influenced by evil perpetrated in an internment camp in France during World War II. There is beauty in the way the sorrow and pain is resolved forty years after the fact. There is beauty in the meal that occasioned the resolution. And there is beauty conveyed through the photography and choice of setting for the film.
My wife and I just happened upon this film Friday night, October 24, 2008. We were pleased with our choice to experience it together and have thought about and discussed the film from time to time since watching it.
