When the life is about to finish!!

Both Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn making probable their best performance in this touching drama,the movie explore all fears coming with ages,when Fonda had a panic in the woods and realize he was lost and helpless,your harbor is your comprehensive wife in every hour of bad humor and often bitter,the absence daughter made a deep damage through the time between them,the things needs fit in the end,apart some clichés a Hollywood's perfect formula of success scratch the picture sometimes,even so the message is fulsomely delivery!!

Resume:

First watch: 1985 / How many: 2 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 8.5

there are a couple of things here

A few things struck me while I was watching "On Golden Pond". The obvious thing was the co-starring of two generations of Fondas. I understand that Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda hadn't been on the best terms due to her political activism in the '60s, and so this movie was a sort of reconciliation for both of them.

As for the plot, the movie comes across as a "nice movie" that you can take the kids to see. Katharine Hepburn's "knight in shining armor" quote pretty much sums up the movie's feeling. I'm not saying that it's a bad movie, just a little too fluffy. It's a surprise seeing Jane Fonda and Dabney Coleman play wife and husband, since they had just played enemies in "9 to 5".

Basically, it's a watchable movie, but not any sort of masterpiece. Probably worth seeing once. So strange to think that Henry Fonda won an Academy Award for the role and died a few months later.

Classic family drama

On Golden Pond is famous for many reasons, and if you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out on some of the most memorable moments of semi-modern, semi-classic film history.

Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda play an old married couple who return to their lake cottage to celebrate Henry's 80th birthday. He's a crotchety old man who's grumpy all the time and doesn't like getting older. Katharine supplies the warmth in the family, including their relationship with their daughter, Jane Fonda. Jane and Henry don't get along, mirroring their real-life relationship, and when she comes to the lake house to mend their old wounds, it's an uphill battle.

Dabney Coleman costars as Jane's fiancé, and Doug McKeon plays Dabney's teenage son who bonds with Henry. Both Katharine and Henry received Oscars for their performance, as did Ernest Thompson for his adapted screenplay. It's hard to choose one famous moment from the film, since there are so many: Katharine's "go go go" speech, Jane's backflip, Henry and Jane's hug, Jane's tearful "I want to be your friend" line, and Henry's pronunciation of his wife's name. It's definitely worth watching, especially if you're a fan of anyone in the cast, or if you have issues with your father.
