The Goddess of Love touches a man

Rotten Tomatoes Audience 73% liked it
Metacritic User Score 7.3/10
The fact that Peter O'Toole and Vanessa Redgrave are in the film makes it deserving of an 8.0, helped no doubt by the repartee between some characters.

My impressions:

The pleasurable pursuit and enjoyment of life
All through the years
With nary a regret
Sees one wondering
Whether that was our true self

Then comes a different whiff of air
Not entirely unique in its own way
But it does give one another slant
To the past
And what today and the future will bring
How ever long or short that period may be

We know the end is near
We make time
To discover again
The other side
Stubborn are we
That what we have done
In the name of pleasure
Was done with eyes open

No regrets
But acceptance
A life full of joy and laughter
Remembered by many
With fondness and sweet memories
