Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

Best films w/aged central characters? "Ikiru," of course. "Wild Strawberries:" definitely.

And then "Umberto D." To these films directed by the justly renowned Kurosawa, Bergman, and De Sica, I'd add the small gem (1 hour, 16 minutes) by the underappreciated Argentinian Carlos Sorin, "The Window."

A bed-ridden, 80-year old man in poor health awaits the last visit of his star pianist son. That's it. Antonio Larreta, renowned writer, was in his mid-80s when he gave this arresting, quietly powerful performance.

Though Sorin is far less known, this work deserves ranking right next to the 3 other masterworks. Highest recommendation.
