Sellers a work of Art.
Being There is a film about a simple and mildly retarded gardener, played by Peter Sellers who’s entire adult life was gardening for an elderly gentleman and watching television. When the old man dies, Chancey is left homeless and on his own. Due to his past recluse surroundings he is unaware of the every day technology, such as telephone, elevators etc., which leads to some comical situations. He is saved from the streets, by a wealthy woman, Eve Rand, played by Shirley MacLean. When her limo backs into him she takes him home to be treated by her dying husbands physician Dr Allenby played by Richard Dysort. Everyone mistakes Chancey’s simple mutterings as profound insight and wisdom. Benjamin Rand played by Melvin Douglas is a wealthy influential business tycoon who is well connected in politics and a personal friend of the President, played by Jack Warden. They also mistake the simple utterance’s as insightful.
Although the film is comical at times, it is also very sad, as Chancey lacks awareness of what’s going on around him most of the time. He has no reaction, even when Eve Rand, tries to seduce him, which is one of the many humourous scenes.
The filming and directing is good and the film moves along with a good pace, and is very entertaining and a must see for all Peter Sellers fans. Once again Sellers shows the incredible talent, that he was so well known for.
what can i say,this has to be one of the best films ever made,it was shown last night on bbc2 Scotland and its the first time i had ever seen it the news paper gave it an unmissable review and usually you take them with a pinch of salt ( it basically said its a bit slow to start but worth watching just for the ending) iam so glad i gave it a chance and watched it all the way .The film is about 2 hours long but after 20 minutes it pulls you in and you feel attached to to peter sellers character…..and the 2 hours just seems to pass too quickly.
its true the film is a bit like Forrest gump all be it the main character is a bit gump like but the story is simple and just glides along.
the film is funny ,sad and very touching and truly leaves you smiling .
this film is a true masterpiece and one for the collection its definitely in my top 10 of fave films.
even if you only ever watch this film once it will stay with you for a long time to sum up from beginning to end its a work of genius and the ending is fantastic but i will not say anymore than that.
