There are situations when sensibility reaches its limits. Then, exploring beyond those limits becomes a very dangerous yet necessary venture. Peter Shaffer showed us a beautiful story of such exploration. The story where unbearable and inevitable are the two sides of the same coin. I enjoyed it deeply.
I loved this play. I read it for a college course and it was entertaining. It's odd mystery that the reader or audience tries to figure. It's a quick read. I loved it because it had a deeper meanings to it and a lot of symbolism.
After watching this movie, it stayed in my mind for days. I kept thinking about what the psychiatrist said about having passion in life, whether it be from a disturbed mind or a middle-aged burnt-out psychiatrist. Oh, I know I'm getting it all wrong. You'll have to see the movie. It really makes you think. Richard Burton and Peter Firth give once-in-a-lifetime performances, ones that I will always remember.
