(5 out of 5 stars)
""Providence" is one of those movies which you'll either love or hate. I don't believe there can be any in-between. It is an elegantly told story of an old, dying writer (John Geilgud) who invites his family for a weekend visit of blame and recriminations. Some of the movie is memory and some present-time and none of it is easily or fully explained. The viewer must work as hard as while reading a difficult, but ultimately very rewarding, novel like one of Faulkner's. The rest of the cast, wonderfully directed by Alain Resnais ("Hiroshima, Mon Amour") includes Dirk Bogarde & Ellen Burstyn.However, I don't think there is anyone who will not be moved by the extraordinarily beautiful score by Miklos Rozsa. This is touching, beautiful, lush, fully accessible music. You'll love it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
A late masterpiece by an undisputed master

""Providence" ranks among Rozsa's greatest scores. That melancholy waltz-theme of his is about as good as movie music ever gets. This score provides a reason for living."
