I'm so glad that my wife found this Brit Film. Is was always going to end without laughs but that wasn't what we were looking for. Knowing Pierce Brosnan was an elderly seventy year old like me I was interested to see how he held up as a veteran 23 his senior.
Well, he did so magnificently and convincingly. His tactic was to simply underplay the character as you would expect of such an old man and it worked. No excitement, not many guffaws but nevertheless a good film about real people as their lights fade.
Part of me prefers him as Archie here than James Bond because he's so believable. Steel yourself for the unexpected ending and, oh, have those hankies to hand. A proper gem of a movie.
