My Dinner With Andre (1981)
Old friends Wallace and Andre haven’t seen each other for 5 long years, and agree to meet for dinner. As usually happens, the two friends begins to trade stories and while both men started in the same place 5 years ago, one has found success traveling the world, while the other stagnated by staying home.
For a film that is 110 minutes of talking, Ebert found it to be full of passion, wit, scandal, whimsy, hope and despair. He gives credit to the actors to create stories that are living, breathing entities with a beating heart of reality and passion, with an undercurrent of friendship and respect. You’re not just watching them talk, but living in the tales.
