The remarkable thing about "Scent of a Woman" is that the lead character played by Al
Pacino, a blind retired army officer, could have wallowed in self pity and we would have forgiven him for it.
He did not. He was physically handicapped , yes. He could have blamed it on the military or his country
or whatever. He did not. He is an irascible alcoholic, but you get the feeling that those conditions
are not due to his handicap. That's the way he is. There was a beautiful scene where he dances with a
young lady in red in New York, later to be attracted to a teacher in his mentor/assistant/aide's prep school.
This takes much of his irascibility away as shown in the last scene of the movie where he plays happily with his
nephews and nieces.
