To say that Eastwood, who directed, has done a first-rate job of adaptation fails to do him justice. What he's brought off is closer to alchemy.

Richard LaGravenese's flashback script craftily tones down Waller's wind, adds a germane subplot and strengthens the novella's framing device. [02 Jun 1995, Pg.01.D]
It is easy to analyze the mechanism, but more difficult to explain why this film is so deeply moving.
A beautiful film, not only in the way it was photographed, but for the manner through which the characters are revealed to us.
