4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone needs a friend !!, 9 Nov 2013
This review is from: Robot & Frank [DVD] (DVD)
Set a little time in the future Frank Langella plays an ageing jewel burglar who's befriended by a robot bought for him by his son to help him around the house he's reluctant to accept it at first but later when he gets to know it better he agrees and he and the robot plan heists together. An interesting concept but what makes this different from other films is that it's really about Alzheimer's Disease and the need to be understood and cared for by family or carers. Franks' predicament is made worse by his refusal to admit that he has a problem with his memory but his relationship with the robot ( voiced by Peter Sarsgaard ) is sweet and provides a touching lesson in acceptance and trust. A very good film with a hidden lesson that we should all take note of as most , if not all of us , will come into contact with this disease at some time.
