Reviews

Robert De Niro stars in this bittersweet drama based on the 1990 Italian film 'Stanno Tutti Bene' by Giuseppe Tornatore. Recently retired, Frank Goode (De Niro) realises that he has grown distant from his four grown-up children over the years, especially since the death of his wife, and decides that it is high time he reconnected with them. Despite a doctor's warning about the risks of over-exerting himself, Frank sets out on a journey across America with the intention of paying a surprise visit to each of his children and partaking in their success and happiness. Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell co-star.

Format: DVD
Based on an earlier Italian film, this slow meandering tale is full of charm and poignancy. Poor old Frank, too much time on his hands to ponder his life and children. When the grown up kids can't come and visit him, he decides to visit them. What he finds is that they are not quite how he had imagined. Unknown to him, his late wife had filtered out any stories of bad news.

De Niro is sublime as the hapless father as he discovers some truths too close to home for comfort. It's a beautiful portrayal and perhaps this is the secret to the film's success. That said the rest of the cast do not disappoint and the locations seem more real than we typically see in Hollywood movies.

It takes patience to see this movie to the end due to its simplicity and subtleness, but it is worth every minute.

Format: DVD
Robert De Niro is perfect, with his characteristic subtle facial expressions and body language, as the older alpha male recently widowed who tries to pick up where mother left off in keeping the family together. He clearly loves his kids (now fully adult, enmeshed in life's tragedies, turmoil, absurdities and dilemmas), but he doesn't really know them.
This is not a man who was a bad father - he was just a man of his times; 'ruled the roost' of his burgeoning family, probably working too hard to give much time to his kids, presuming he's done everything he could to give his family a 'better life' - everything's okay.
As his kids find excuses to duck out of the holidays gathering at the family home, De Niro decides to find out what's going on and takes off to visit them one by one.
His journey of discovery is so poignantly portrayed, the dawning realization that life is not what it appears to be - even your children aren't who you thought they were - is grappled with gracefully by the bemused father who doesn't fully get what, or why he never knew. His daughters (one he discovers is a lesbian) and son are forced to let him into the truth of their lives and oh-so-gently and lovingly reveal that they could never talk to him - they talked to their mother.
Drew Barrymore is delightful and absorbing and compassionate, Kate Beckinsale is in the midst of turmoil that she cannot contain, Sam Rockwell is both sad and heart-broken, fearing he hasn't lived up to his father's expectations. The other son has been under as much protective watch as the siblings could give, and as the fate of this son turns out, it's clear to the viewer that things could have been different had communications been more open between father and kids and visa-versa.

I've never felt so compelled to write a review before, and this is not so much a review, but simply to say that it touched me deeply, i was in tears at the end, and trust me, it's not normally the kind of film I'm into, but this is simply beautiful and can recommend to anyone, enjoy the movie, thanks.

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Lark TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 Sep 2010
Format: DVD
This is a brilliant feature but its also a heart breaking one, viewers who are expecting a feature such as meet the fockers or something similar to this genre would do well to think again.

Instead I found that this film was more in tune with Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino, the characters a very different but the theme of aging and the trials and challenges associated with it are strong.

De Niro's character is an aged father of grown children whose hopes of family reunions being perpetually frustrated goes in search of each of his children paying them surprise visits. In the course of which he discovers that they are not all being honest with him or, in some instances, themselves and that they are dealing with disappointment, disaffection and confounded expectations too.

Characterisation is done very well, the cinematography is good too, often evoking feelings in the viewer without overbearing narration or similar plot tools. Instead there are brilliant scenes in which De Niro's character sees his grown children as they where when they were younger or dream sequences which combine wish fulfilment (the hoped for reunion) and revelatory ephiphanies (like Jungian dream analysis put on screen).

There are some incidential but brilliant touches, the kindness and respectfulness of an older generation comes up against the feelings of aggrieved entitlement of another, the pictures taken throughout are taken with a film camera and then appear as the credits role along with other photograph memories.

Overall it was a good feature and I felt would bare rewatching a few times but it is also a very saddening one, despite its ultimately happy finish and upbeat scenes. Extras included on the DVD include deleted and extended scenes and an interview with Paul McCartney who talks about writing a song for the film (this was a bit odd I thought but anyway). Recommended.

Format: DVD
A recently widowed man, Frank Goode, ( deNiro ), is looking forward to all his grown up children coming to see him at the same time. However, one by one, they all cry off and so he decides to go and see them and deliver another invite to each of them personally.
First off he goes to New York to see his artist son David but he's not home. Next it's daughter Amy, (Kate Beckinsale), who is shocked to see him and in a bit of a hurry to get rid of him. During an uncomfortable dinner with her son & husband it becomes obvious she's not being honest with her dad & all is not well.
He moves on to Chicago to see his musician son Robert, (Sam Rockwell), who is also hiding secrets and finds himself uncomfortable in his dad's company.
Finally having seen daughter Rosie, (Drew Barrymore), in Las Vegas & realising that she too is hiding the truth from him and on his way home Frank becomes ill and gradually he see's just what each child is hiding from him and learns the truth of the one child he has yet to see.
DeNiro plays this just right. Understated but with emotion bubbling under the surface and confusion and disappointment slowly giving way to understanding and acceptance.
He is supported very ably by a solid and reliable cast who all make their characters believable and likeable.
This film completely refuses to give way to tear jerking schmaltz or hand wringing guilt. Everyone is trying their best to please their dad but have just not been able to reach the high expectations he had for them all and have suffered in trying to do so.
An excellent recurring theme is of Frank seeing them as children as they appear and the scene where they all sit round a table as children with him and explain just what is really happening in their lives works simply and very movingly.
