Australia released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: A man well-settled into the Autumn of his life, Joe Mueller (Max von Sydow) is lovingly supported by his daughter Anne (Carol Drinkwater) and her husband Bobby (Steve Jacobs), a close-knit family ill-prepared for the dark secrets that are about to be uncovered. Tracked down by Holocaust survivor Iya Zetnick (Julia Blake) Joe is soon exposed as a concentration camp functionary responsible for murdering her family back in Lithuania. Branded a war criminal and subject to all manner of speculation and charge, Joe faces a heart wrenching ordeal - forgoing his once idyllic existence for a life of turmoil and paranoia - with his family his only refuge. But when Anne discovers the extent of her father's suspicious past, she is unwittingly torn between the devastating truth and her loyalty to family. In the tradition of Music Box and The Reader, winner of two AFI Awards, Father explores a universal story that lurks deep in the shadow of the past to forever haunt our perception of history. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Australian Film Institute, Moscow International Film Festival, ...Father

Strong performances and true to life circumstances. This is a believable story and has certainly happened in reality with similar events.

Wouldn't Have Missed It for Anything!! 24 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely loved the movie. I started watching Carol Drinkwater in All Creatures Great and Small, so I decided to buy this one. I'm glad I did. It tells the beautiful story of a daughter's love for her father and shows that love reaches beyond even the greatest obstacle.

Whom Australia "a lucky country" is for 16 July 2014
By Michael Kerjman - Published on Amazon.com
Concluding both some illogical and, perhaps, populistic moments, this an 80th last century story of disclosing a war murderer turned a prosperous naturalized Australian looks a good wish rather than a reality.

Actors' performing and Melbourne landscapes make it interesting to watch while a comparison of achievements an ex-SS-officer and his victim survived gained locally tells itself whom Australia "a lucky country" is for.
