    much as it did mine Falk s kindly grandfather starting to read the story to Fred Wonder Years Ward actually pulls you into the idea of magic Falk had one of the loveliest voices and he could have read anything to me and I would have been happy So you re lulled into suspending disbelief long before castles and princesses and wizards appear Yes Robin Wright has a luminous quality and great sparkle and Chris Sarandon is such a good bad guy And Cary Elwes never had such a romantic and dreamy role The mixing of so many film standard ideas actually creates a brand new feeling and genre You would have to be a hard hearted giant in a distant and long ago kingdom not to go a little weak at THAT kiss Rob Reiner may have majored in schmaltzy family feel good for most of his career but he pulls together every strand of positive warmth and beauty in his director s bag of tricks to make this really work Every time I see it I notice something different and original The first few times I didn t even notice how great Wallace Shawn and Mel Smith are in this I have now seen it 11 times And I look forward to the 12th viewing By about my 4th time I appreciated Peter Cook s clergyman much more And I really wished that Mandy Patinkin had had more of these Inigo roles because he s just so good And the fabulous and funny Carol Kane And Billy Crystal And the utterly individual Christopher Guest There is more talent and love in this movie than there is in most stories put together Adrian Biddle did the blissful cinematography and Mark Knopfler s music is superb even if you hate
