Peter O'Toole's late renaissance continues as his character Fisk becomes the emotional centre of this quixotic adaptation of a 1936 novella. Sam Neill plays the eponymous Spanley,a believer in reincarnation whose tales bring renewed life to the bereaved and melancholy Fisk.


A genuine and surprising pleasure.
