review by
Mike Haberfelner

Now in their 70s, Robyn (Diana Quick) and Oscar (Bernard Hill) have spent a good 50 years married to each other, and happily so - when an ex from way back, Jim (Julian Glover), shows up and asks her, a writer, to write his story. Unsurprisingly, she flat out refuses. The next day though Jim shows up at her doorstep and asks her again to write his story - only now he looks about 50 years younger (and is played by Mark Jackson). Again, he asks her to write his story, about how he developed a serum, Novis, to make one young again - and this is just too big a story to turn down. Furthermore, Jim offers Novis to her and Robyn, so they can be young again. Robyn is all for the idea as the one regret she has is she has refused to give Oscar the child he wanted, but weirdly enough Oscar turns the offer down. Robyn takes Novis (and is hereafter played by Amy Tyger) and soon enough looks like in her twenties - so much so that Jim has the hots for her again -, and she tries everything to persuade Oscar to take it as well, with absolutely no success. Their marriage suffers from it, but Robyn is unwilling to give up on him - not knowing that she puts him in great danger for exactly this ...

British screen veteran Stephanie Beacham plays Robyn's beauty-obsessed best friend, South African singer/songwriter Anna Wolf can be seen as Jim's estranged daughter in her acting debut.


Despite its science fiction theme, Forever Young is actually a love story - but not a sappy tearjerker but one that shows actual heart all along the way while touching on many interesting themes, discussing them in a rather philosophical way. And a first class cast playing well rounded out characters with often fascinating arcs, and a suitably subtle direction giving the actors the necessary space to breathe only help making this a very enjoyable watch.
