Quote about Camilla

"Camilla is a delicate, almost fragile composition. At times, the film's meandering narrative seems to lose its bearings. But Camilla eventually wends its way into the heart, leaving the viewer with an irresistibly poignant image--of a radiant Jessica Tandy, who died in September [1994] at the age of 85, giving her final performance in a movie that is, in the end, about final performances."
-- Brian D. Johnson (source)
