Basically a study in shifting attitudes and relatioship during a journey undertaken by two old friends (Ylva, the middle-aged woman artist, and her bachelor cousin 'Uncle Dan', with his passion for pastries oddly tucke...展开d away in closets). They chat, quarrel, reminisce, observe, remember, as she tries to rouse him to new life. Nothing very decisive happens, but we are drawn into the life of this odd couple by dint of the superb ensemble playing of the two principals. Thulin has the less sympathetic role, perhaps, but gives it a grave, inner tension. Josephson is simply superb: here is a finely-crafted, minutely observed portrait of a man totally immersed (and lost) in his own little eccentric world, funny and pathetic at the same time.
