This is an unusual film about a boy - who is clearly a very unusual boy. Previous review described the boy as 'annoying' ... i think they have missed the point of the character. The boy is intense and would clearly be classed as very high functioning autistic (which is briefly mentioned in the film) - i didn't find him annoying at all, i found him charming and very moving. Highly intelligent but struggles with people and his own emotions. His father works with him constantly to encourage him to interact with people and face situations he (the boy) thinks he can't cope with. They play games, invent games with clues to be solved - and are just so close. Then it happens - that day. After that the boy has to cope without his dad and this story is the boy trying to move on, trying to cope with so much going on in his brain, trying to cope with his grief. The mum seems to be distant, not at all close with her son but really (and obviously ) she understands her sons problems and this will become clear. Its not a typical film about a child, this is a child with emotional problems - suberbly acted and i really enjoyed it.

Anybody who remembers the awful tragedy of 9/11 cannot fail to be moved by this film and I think it portrays what life must have been like for many children and adult partners as they sought and still seek to come to terms with that event and the loss of a loved one. The cast where great and there was real feeling in the way they acted which brought you into the situation whether you wanted to be there or not. A film well worth watching, if only to remind us just how fragile our time and relationship are, and it reminds us that what we leave behind are memories for others to cherish and respond to.

Format: DVD
This is a film about a middle aged father and his son. The boy is perhaps 11 years old.

The film possibly requires some experience of being a father who invests his own ambitions into a talented son; or, of being a son of an absent father (maybe the person who experiences these things is necessarily the same sort of person?)

The power of the film is directly psychoanalytic, that is, it dramatises the subconscious.

New York is a city which has been rendered homeless; the father, its belief in itself has been destroyed by 9/11. Reactions vary: avoidance, anger, outrage, grief, searching.

Oskar has lost his father. His father lost his father (von Sydow). And Von Sydow lost his father (in an air raid in Dresden).

The absent father, like the absent God, makes us wander around searching through this life.

And so, as Oskar says, all he wanted was to make his Father proud. His father now lives in the 6th Borough of NY.

And, at the end of the film, Oskar finds the simple object of his quest, which Tom Hanks had set up for him, under the seat of a public swing. Hanks had only wanted Oskar to try to use the swing and enjoy that simple boyish activity.

--

I am very impressed by the alignment of Oskar's father, Hanks, jumping from the swing - as a direct analogue of the same Hanks as an adult jumping from the 110th floor of the second of the Twin Towers. As if in an act of joy, he jumped out.

I am also glad that the idea that Oskar, a boy who is loved by his father, is not given the diagnosis of 'aspergic'. Isn't that 'disease' just the affliction of very clever and not very rich children who deserve to go far in life, but probably won't due to the Capitalist system? ? Shame on Hanks for even taking his boy for the test.

I also love the acting of the boy, and the role which he plays, which demands that he 'do not stop' looking.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When Stephen Daldry's drama about a young boy trying to come to terms with the loss of his father was first released, the critics savaged it. Those that gave it more than one star damned it as "Oscar bait" and, indeed, Max von Sydow's non-speaking performance was, bizarrely, nominated for an Academy Award.

Very few people, however, took the time to look closely at the central performance by young Thomas Horn, who manages to carry the whole film despite never having acted before. Less charitable viewers have described his character as annoying, with too many irritating quirks; I disagree. Having some experience of being in the presence of children with autism, I recognised some of the classic traits in the character of Oskar - a precociously bright, single-minded child who finds it difficult to relate to others and who needs the world around him to make sense. In the script, Oskar even mentions that he'd had tests for Asperger's syndrome but that the results were "inconclusive".

There is a fairly thick layer of schmaltz overlaying the film and Sandra Bullock, playing Oskar's mother is criminally underused, but this is a film that draws you into its - or more precisely Oskar's - world so fully that you're compelled to watch it to its conclusion.

It most definitely isn't a film for everyone, but if you think it might be your type of film, it's worth a few quid just to marvel at the central performance. There is a section in the middle that slows the film down, and that's the reason I can't stretch to a four-star rating, but it's most definitely a solid three-and-a-bit.
