So often one leaves the theater or presses re-wind with a thoughttaking the form of, &quot;That was a really good film, but...&quot; At the end of&quot;Wit,&quot; I could not find a qualifier to complete that thought, and Istill cannot. This film is a piece of perfection, tightly fitted butnot contrived; dramatic without overstatement; and deeply movingwithout sentimentality. <br><br>It also comprises a tour-de-force performance by Emma Thompson, anactor whose performances are almost always extraordinary -- so the factthat this one stands out says a lot. <br><br>The dialogue (and monologue) is amusing, minimalistic but never toolittle, and is always sufficient to the scene. There is plenty ofirony, wry humor, and understated insight; and yet the film, stark asit is, is abundantly human and, in places, even sweet. <br><br>At the height of the grinding sorrow that Thompson so skillfully bringsus into, a startling scene between her old academic mentor is a lovingact of redemption, shared by them both. <br><br>As an additional note, the surprising appearance of Christopher Lloydin this film, as the research oncologist, provides a perfect foil forVivian's role as a patient and as an academician. Lloyd's performanceis convincing, and yet it contains just enough of eccentricity andkindness to make his character's disinterested role entirelysympathetic.<br><br>A wonderful film. Not -- be warned -- an easy film to watch, butdecidedly worth it.

Although a sad movie with a sad ending it is absolutely wonderfullyfascinating. It holds you glued to you your seat the entire time. Forthose who are critical, they just do't appreciate Mike Nichols and EmmaThompson's brilliance and are too affected by the subject of facingdeath. It is a pity that this was a telefilm. Has it been a theatricalrelease, it would easily have earned Emma Thompson an Oscar.<br><br>I thought that Gorecki's 3rd Symphony in the background was a brillianttouch. Christopher Lloyd as the doctor was excellent. Emma's Teacherreading Runaway Bunny at the end was touching and meaningful. Althoughsome people might see this movie as a downer, it is an honest andimportant work dealing with life, goals, cancer, relationships, . . Seeit.

WIT / (2001) **** (out of four)<br><br>By Blake French:<br><br> &quot;Wit&quot; is one of the most personal stories of terminal illness that I canremember. Most of the movie takes place behind hospital doors where thefilm's main character is tested and treated for advanced stages of ovariancancer-that may be the reason that it was released straight to cable TVinstead of getting a much deserved theatrical release. Do not let thedepressing themes stop you from viewing &quot;Wit,&quot; it is thought-provoking,riveting, unforgettable-one of the best movies of the year.<br><br> The film is directed by Mike Nichols (whose most memorable work is theoriginal classic, &quot;The Graduate&quot;). He is at the top of his game here,vividly focused and, working for a script by himself and Emma Thompson, usesa narrative of the first person. The main character, a strict professor ofpoety in her upper forties named Vivian Bearing, often talks directly to thecamera, incorporating a straightforward point of view as she shares herpersonal feelings directly. This gives the movie a personal dimension, andthe soundtrack, consisting of memorable classical music, contributes to thepenetrating power of this superb motion picture. <br><br> Since the production never had a theatrical release, it will not beeligible for Academy Awards next March. That is a shame, because the work byEmma Thompson is more invigorating, emotional, and involving as anything weare likely to see this year. She delivers a performance of awe-inducingempathy, doing something many actresses would have trouble dealing with. Sheplays a tough individual, both physically and emotionally, but, as themovie's clear irony proves, even the strongest people have a breaking point,and when she reaches hers, she loses confidence in her past and currentstrengths. Thompson is heartbreaking and vivid, creating one of the mostconvincing and noteworthy characters in a long time. <br><br> Christopher Lloyd plays Dr. Harvey Kelekian, the person in charge of Ms.Bearing's treatments. It is clear this man is more concerned about theresults of the tests then the actual person being tested. Bearing becomes amere guinea pig, and as she states in one of the movie's most powerfulscenes, she is unbearably ill not because he has advanced stages of ovariancancer, but because she is being treated for advanced stages of ovariancancer. It is the actual treatments that are a threat to her health. EileenAtkins plays a sympathetic nurse who sees Bearing as more than just apatient, but a person. Jonathan M. Woodward delivers a powerful performanceas another hospital worker more interesting in numbers than people.<br><br> &quot;Wit&quot; is a powerful, harrowing movie not to be missed. It aired on HBO abouta week ago and will continue running for a while, until finally reachinghome video. Check you local TV listing for show times, or wait for the videorelease. This movie has a place on my list of the top ten movies of theyear, and for you to miss such an influential picture would be a crime. <br><br>
