Don't Look Now (1973): review: 10/10

Following the death of a child, a couple go to Venice, where they encounter two elderly sisters, one of whom has mystical powers.

The film is an exploration of grief, love, and  the need to believe, or the possibility of believing in the supernatiural.

So well filmed and acted is the piece that we viewers become partners in this exploration. This identification is largely thanks to Julie Christie's excellence, which succeeds in eliciting compassion.
