Audience Reviews for Popi

Although it buckles a little under the weight of it's preposterous premise, it's still a must-see for Alan Arkin fans. He's truly at the top of his game.

Yet again I say, Alan Arkin deserved his Oscar this year. This is a powerfully quiet film about love and the lengths to which a parent might go in order to express that love. Arkin's misguided plan to find a better life for his sons only goes to prove that the bounds of familial love are often too strong to break, no matter how altruistic the intentions may be.
