Table for Five, This is one of my favorite movies. I saw it years ago when it first came out.
So many scenes and feelings from it have lingered on with me to this day.
Jon Voight gives us one of his most magical performances. It is such a shame we don’t see him as much as we once did. This is an actor who you can live through every emotion…and you know it is genuinely felt without ever falling below a level of human tenderness into anything less.
I was particularly captivated by Marie-Christine Barrault and Roxana Zal’s performances. Robby Keger always made me smile – he played his character with such joy and love. Son Huang Bui did not have enough to do but you could see that he might have done well with an expanded part.
Richard Crenna and Millie Perkins contributed their wonderful range to round out this wonderful cast.
I recommend this to anyone, without reservation.
