Starring Judi Dench, Jennifer Saunders and Derek Jacobi in this charming adaptation of Alan Bennett’s play about old age.
More than half a century after Ronald Harwood adapted Solzhenitsyn’s great novel for Caspar Wrede’s movie starring Tom Courtenay, the veteran director Gleb Panfilov has filmed his own treatment, to stunning effect.
It is notable for its introductory action sequence, its subsequent intimacy and its punctuation by ravishing landscapes. Not to be missed.
