Truly astonishing that reviewers here are so hung up on action and can't appreciate the beauty of Broken Flowers, the deliciously subtle and playful humour, the craft of the director and cinematographer and above all the superb acting from a fine ensemble cast, led by the ever deadpan Bill Murray. Seems some people are uncomfortable with the time and space in which the characters live and breathe in their own quiet way, and also with the ambiguous resolution. Sorry guys, but life's like that! Well, don't watch if you're expecting labarynthine plot twists or ten deaths a minute, but luxuriate in the atmosphere, drink it in. This is not a perfect film but the good things here are totally spellbinding.
