Editorial Reviews

Your laugh would always make me happy, the young man whispers to his aged grandmother, Peege, who, now blind and helpless, seems almost to be awaiting death. This poignant film portrays a family's Christmas visit to their grandmother, a patient in a nursing home, and their sense of despair and isolation as they struggle to communicate. But when other family members leave the room, one grandson stays behind, touching his grandmother's hand and hair and reminiscing about Peege as a laughing, fun-loving person. The young man leaves, tearful and unsure whether he penetrated her loneliness. Director Randal Kleiser's camera, deftly lingering on her face, delivers the subtle yet clear answer. This award-winning film stars Bruce Davison and Jeanette Nolan, and was produced by David Knapp and Leonard Berman. Peege was one of 25 films added in December 2007 to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, which recognizes classics from every era and praised Peege as "extremely moving." Peege is an invaluable addition to the library of any institution that cares for the elderly or their families. The Peege DVD, digitally remastered from original film elements, comes with special features that include photo albums and audio commentaries by director Randal Kleiser, actor Bruce Davison, and Dr. Robert Yahnke, a professor at the University of Minnesota and an expert on the role of film and literature in gerontological education. Closed-captioned in English.

I remember seeing this is high school back in '84. Stuck in my mind since then. One of the few things I remember about high school. Was always hoping to see it again. Now I have it in my video library for my young daughter to see when she grows up. Am so glad they brought it to DVD. Just love it.

I have been looking for this film for decades after watching it in a class during my undergraduate studies. It demonstrates to me there is always a connection no matter how difficult the forms of communication may be at the moment. The story reminds me of how often we make silly comments when visiting an elderly person ("is the food good here?"). Actually, the senior just wants to be loved and have a connection made with the visitor as you see the eldest grandson attempt to do with his grandmother by remember special moments in their lives together. She is treated with dignity, humor, love, and respect by her grandson. The rest of his family are the real losers in the film. Our seniors have so much to teach us. They are really a blessing to us.

I have interacted with many elderly people and their families. I have used this film in workshops to help them better understand how to interact with individuals with limited capacity. The message in this movie is beautifully communicated.

First saw this film in high school ('82-83) when my Health teacher showed it to us. I'd always enjoyed visiting nursing homes but it was films like this that led me to work in nursing homes thru college & major in long term care administration and then a career in nursing. I've always remembered the message of the film when working with elderly- that even if they can't speak or communicate clearly, we should always assume that they know- at some level- we are there & they have memories. This film should be shown to all children and young adults and people going into the field of geriatrics. Very happy to be able to purchase it!
