"Your laugh would always make me happy," the young man whispers to his aged grandmother, Peege, who, now blind and helpless, seems to be awaiting death. This touching, poignant film portrays a family's Christmas visit to their grandmother, a patient in a nursing home, and their sense of despair and isolation as they struggle vainly to communicate. But when other family members leave the room, the grandson stays behind, touching her hand and her hair and reminiscing about Peege as a laughing, fun-loving person. The young man leaves, tearful and unsure whether he penetrated her dark loneliness. Director Randal Kleiser's camera, deftly lingering on her face, delivers the subtle yet clear answer. This award-winning film stars Bruce Davison and Jeanette Nolan, and was produced by David Knapp and Leonard Berman. 28 minutes, color.
