Critic Reviews for Romulus, My Father
For all its sad moments, Romulus, My Father is a love story between father and son kept aloft by unalloyed admiration.
For all that it's well made and expertly acted, the film keeps its audience at arm's length, letting viewers observe without offering an emotional portal of entrance.
It's not clear what we're supposed to take away from the film.
The darkness of the story is counterbalanced by some of the most radiantly beautiful cinematography I've seen in a long time.
Helming bow by Oz thesp Richard Roxburgh predictably leaves actors plenty of room, but the literary tone and episodic structure rob the pic of dramatic momentum.
Audience Reviews for Romulus, My Father
Very moving, and there just never seems to be a dull moment. This is supposed to be a true story, also, which amazes me. At the end it tells you that the boy in the story grew up and did well in his life. Sheesh. If he can, anyone can because this family (this boy especially) went through one horrible time after another. Eric Bana did a wonderful job playing the father. I have never paid much attention to him before, but now I have seen a side of his acting that leaves me at awe. Really great movie.
Here's an interesting movie that follows the life of Romulus and his family. As he deals with daily life, he realizes that his family is falling apart and his wife is on the verge of leaving him and all that is dear to him is his son. Eric Bana and Franka Potente stars. Worth seeing.
A nice movie, but a little slow for me.
