Reviews


100
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
The best film about the wages of aging since Amour eight years ago, The Father takes a bracingly insightful, subtle and nuanced look at encroaching dementia and the toll it takes on those in close proximity to the afflicted.

Film Threat - Alex Saveliev
The Father is about the suffering of old age, the importance of connection, the sick encroaching of an affliction, and ultimately, death. It doesn’t sugarcoat things, despite its sugarcoated exterior. Like its French counterpart, Michael Haneke’s Amour, it’s not an easy watch, but it’s a necessary one, a film that examines the very essence of our humanity.

Vanity Fair - Richard Lawson
The Father is an act of understanding, radical in its toughness and its generous artistry.

Variety - Owen Gleiberman
The Father is a chamber piece, but it has the artistic verve to keep twisting the reality it shows us without becoming a stunt.
83
The Film Stage - Matt Cipolla
For a movie that follows a character’s perspective while remaining aware of his shortcomings, The Father marks a modest and involved debut from Zeller.
