I loved that film. Who said old people are the living dead? ”They’re the rebels, the wild ones” says the trailer. And I agree: most of the time, once you start having a conversation with a person over 70, they’re fascinating. After all, they’ve lived through two world wars!

My favourite old person (she’s 88 and still very sharp and witty) told me the other day ”Once you’re old, you live through your happy intermediaries”. And she seemed very happy indeed.

But these ones, the singing old ones, they LIVE and laugh and shout and it’s brilliant.
