A good heartwarming tale of an old widowed immigrant who has retired back to his home country. Malden plays the role excellently - I consider it his best role - as Marko Sekulovic - which is play on his own birth last name. Set in his own father's Yugoslavia, Malden seems to play his father or grandfather who returns to his home town after a life in America. His role is genuine. Jodie Thelen, who had the looks to be a sex symbol, plays a proper full of wisdom school teacher, who understands their world and respects Marko in his old age as other scoff at him. Marko raises his two grandchildren whose mother has fled to Germany for better fortune and love. The children are strong and stoic - and very mature (unlike American children). They take on the responsibilities of operating the farm they and Marko live on. Thelen takes a shine to them because of their dilemma. Good Friday night video.
