In this feature film, 7 elderly women find themselves stranded when their bus breaks down in the wilderness. With only their wits, memories and some roasted frogs' legs to sustain them, this remarkable group of strangers share their life stories and turn a potential crisis into a magical time of humour, spirit and camaraderie. Featuring non-professional actors and unscripted dialogue, this film dissolves the barrier between fiction and reality, weaving a heart-warming tale of friendship and courage.

    I discovered this film years, and years just after it came out. It continues to be one of my favorite films. I must have watched this 50 or more times over the years.

    I on the other hand loved the music - the Schubert quintet has been on my favourite list ever since. For me it added immensely to the ambience of this beautiful film.

    I discovered this film years ago while running a video store. I have treasured it ever since. In my top 3 favourites! I grew up around women like these in the movie in the local Audubon Society.

    A brilliant film that makes me a little less anxious about getting old.

    A film recommended to me that I in turn recommend to others... Whether the scenery, time or the characters - all remind one of a person, place or moment in life. Poignant and excellent in all aspects.

    Charming and thought provoking a lovely 'peeling the onion' of characters and relationships. The music for me was too strident and I would have preferred music from their pasts, rather than the 'should have taken her wig off' score, beautiful though it was, it somehow made a delightful and delicate film, a little heavy.
