Critic Reviews for Comment j'ai tué mon père (My Father and I)
Hushed but scalpel-sharp drama, a movie that'll probably send men in the audience home much quieter than they arrived.
Watching these two actors play against each other so intensely, but with restraint, is a treat.
This is a harrowing movie about how parents know where all the buttons are, and how to push them.
The film is about the relationships rather than about the outcome. And it sees those relationships, including that between the son and his wife, and the wife and the father, and between the two brothers, with incredible subtlety and acumen.
Audience Reviews for Comment j'ai tué mon père (My Father and I)
Mildly absorbing Freudian duel between father and son doctors -- med students, take note! Dad is an Albert Schweitzer swashbuckler, who has run a series of shaky clinics for the destitute of Africa. In rebellion, the son becomes a fatuous and wealthy "gerontologist" who seems to take special pleasure in telling his elderly male patients how decayed they are looking. Watch as these two compete over who's the biggest hypocrite and who **really** understands neglected daughter-in-law Natacha Regnier.
How I Killed My Father (or My Father and I) is a rather dull and pondering French drama about a middle-aged doctor who finds himself confronted with his long-lost father. The doctor and the father proceed to engage in a psycological battle with the doctor's wife, lover and brother caught in the middle. The film had some interesting moments of solid drama but in general they were too few and far between. The story seemed to drag and in the final analysis none of the characters were even remotely likable.
