The Ashes is one of my favorite movie from year 1965. In the United Kingdom, The Ashes became one of the highest-grossed Drama movies. This film, which I even refuse to compare with the other ones is the masterpiece created by my favorite director. The Ashes is the only movie I saw full, more than once. Every single performance is incredible. Not to mention that it has the best music in a movie. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts. The Ashes is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.... Show more
