The Four Seasons follows the trials and tribulations of a group of middle-aged friends during a 12-month period. Alan Alda (who also directed) and Carol Burnett play a married couple who consider themselves paragons of sensitivity and sensibility. Alda and Burnett are the instigators of a series of vacations (from New England to the Virgin Islands), which they take in the company of two other couples: Jack Weston and Rita Moreno, and Len Cariou and Sandy Dennis. Everyone's interrelationships are put to the test when Cariou and Dennis divorce, and Cariou subsequently marries the much-younger Bess Armstrong. Not too surprisingly, the comings and goings of The Four Seasons are underscored by the music of Antonio Vivaldi. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
I have seen this movie several times and never tire of it. Carol Burnett and Alan Alda are great together and the story is so true to life. Of course the music is beautiful and the locations are spectactular. It's a timeless salute to friendship and love.
I watch this movie every couple of years, especially the longer I am married. It is sweet, realistic with characters that I know and love in real life. It is set beautifully with a lovely soundtrack and incredible acting.
