Bright days ahead? Caroline has retired, at last. A new life lies before her: time to take care of her children, her husband, and, most of all, herself. However, she soon comes to realize that this new freedom is synonymous with boredom and idleness. Especially when she receives a membership to her neighborhood’s senior club as a birthday present… Reluctant at first, she nevertheless decides to take the plunge. Oddly enough, she meets great people there, starting with the young computer science teacher, who is far from insensitive to her charms. Caroline gradually takes control of her life again and lives a second youth: taking a new lover, living new experiences, breaking the rules, not doing what’s expected of her… Who said that retirement was the beginning of the end and not a new beginning?

Holocaust, plague, prison, etc. This is a holocaust film set in an asylum, so it has double points against it going in. Aside from his occasionally wobbly accent, Jeff Goldblum is compelling as always. Without him, this would have been unwatchable. The script shows a lot of inventiveness and sloppiness. It is a showcase for Goldblum on an absurd and serious stage. The cinematography is great and the director is a little self-indulgent and overly dramatic at times. Perhaps a rookie? It feels a little like experimental theater with an A-list cast... like the abstract Broadway run that never made any money but is well remembered for its oddity.

Allen R (kr) wrote: Deeply dark and cynical counterculture effort that often too on-the-nose for my tastes, but features an OUTSTANDING performance from Paul Newman, an actor who's such a great movie star that you often overlook what a truly gifted actor he was. He's surrounded by a stellar supporting casting standout performances from Anthony Perkins, Pat Hingle, and Cloris Leachman, but the highlight is Mrs. Newman - Joanne Woodward who proves once again that she was one of the most overlooked and under-appreciated actresses of her era.

Family comes visit and are scared until they find that all these killers are sweet. Cute ending. Does not look dangerous to live with these animals in the end, in spite of what the guy that made the film said on the radio. Very simple film. Incredible shots. Filmed in California at the Shambala reserve. Dvd extras about the making of the film answer many questions about the film. Many people bit, scratched, and otherwise hurt during the filming, including the alpha male Mr Marshal (human playing the dad). There were several hospital stay, stitches, and some operations. This was the end of the naive 70s.
