"Heart wrenching look at the end of a life."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Anthony Hopkins was brilliant in portraying a man with no control over his life’s ending. I found it a little confusing as his brain tried to sort out the real events from the imagined ones.


A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Zeller has delivered not only the best film adaptation of the season, but one of the most effective, moving and, dare I say, cinematic films of the year. " – Catherine Springer (CathsFilmForum­.com)
  • " Without resorting to exploitative, amped-up mystery or obfuscation, Zeller and co-writer Christopher Hampton have fashioned a sort of gaslight thriller in which the mind is both predator and prey. " – Guy Lodge (Film of the Week)
  • " Yet The Father is a powerful debut. The mood of isolation with its warped sense of time and the distanced characters confined to their homes: this film reflects our present moment without labouring the point home or making the obvious analogies. " – Tom Baily (The Arts Desk)
