Critic Reviews for Beau Père

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It has enough of Blier's customary taboo-busting vigor to provide a reasonably unsettling good time.

Beau Pere conveys the ways in which some men prove to be pawns in the chess game of love.

Audience Reviews for Beau Père

Patrick Dewaere turns in a superb performance as a grief-stricken man who after the death of his wife begins to entertain romantic notions from his step-daughter. An almost restrained film for Blier and sadly one of the last performances from Dewaere who committed suicide a year later.

Generoso Fierro

An unlikely film about an unlikely situation. A 14 year old beauty starts a passionate affair with hr 28 year old 'step-father'. A guilty pleasure.
