This movie, in itself is a mimicked version of the story it represents. A father wrote the story when he was younger, the son found the script in an attic and the father gave permission for him to develop it into a film,
50 years after it had been written. I admit, though I love this film and it is a "keeper" that could be viewed several times over a lifetime, there are parts of it I wold have refined differently, therefore I highly recommend this film to aspiring filmmakers; it will get your wheels s turning and I am sure somebody out there will want to revise/alter the theme of this film and make a unique story "all their own" for current times. Write a different End, for example.... change the central concept, here is what I am saying; we are all living in an illusion of disconnected life.... but in reality we are all connected.
Film buffs will find "early on the scene" actors all throughout this movie, folks who became very well known for individual stylizations and characters. Most are still living... seems odd to see many of them "just kids" all together here in this movie... just sayin'...it's a sort of commentary on our times TOO... We are living through this, whatever it is, we are all in it.
