Review by Kenneth French:

If you happen to find this out-of-print video, you'll see a big photo of Fred smiling out at you from the box. This might lead you to think that Fred is the main character. Alas, his scenes are few and far between. The movie concerns a Frenchman living in Western Ireland and his relationships with a visiting American man and his sister. Fred pops in now and then as the local Irish doctor, who is checking on the apparently ill main character. Though Fred's Irish accent comes and goes (sort of like in FINIAN'S RAINBOW), he is utterly charming and gives the film its only life. Worth seeing once for Fred and for the beautiful Irish scenery.
