Critic Reviews for All Together
All Together is precisely the sort of picture that many have been missing from Hollywood.
It's too bad the filmmaker felt the need to lighten his unvarnished observations about aging with "cute" stuff.
A dour Gallic comedy about five septuagenarian friends living comfortably in the outskirts of Paris who decide to share a house rather than move into retirement homes.
The film's central performances reflect both its celebration of age and a sense of wistfulness.
Audience Reviews for All Together
It's really hard to hate this movie due to its talented cast, but I did find that the subject matter is sort of handled with kid gloves and it doesn't really explore the complexities of what it is to be an aging group of friends in this world and dealing with issues relevant to them. I mean they do deal with getting older and facing certain health issues as well their relationship with their children, but, again, it isn't particularly complex storytelling right here. It's just content to get by on the talent of its cast, and I can't blame this approach because the cast is great with a lot of talented people. Even if the story isn't complex, that's not to say it is bad, I think it is very entertaining to follow this group of aging friends and the stuff that comes out of that. Perhaps some of it is a bit aimless, but I found it to be an entertaining story with plenty of great material for the cast to perform. I did find the ending to be particularly bittersweet because of the implications of it and how Albert's condition will only get worse, but touching in seeing how Albert's friends are sticking by him during his worst moments. I definitely really liked this movie, it isn't perfect and in some ways it could've been better at creating a better and more believable story for this cast, but it's still a really entertaining movie with an excellent cast.
VersÃ£o francesa de Cocoon sobre uma nova perspectiva da terceira idade. Apaixonei, amei e chorei de saudade quando acabou! Recomendo.
(Old) friendship at its purest and most hurtful. The chemistry between the folks was excellent, and their banter, a class act in anthropologic gerontology. It was good to watch Fonda act again, much more in french.
