    Emotionally complex portrayal of a family suffering from loss. Trier is somehow able to intricately navigate these very complex characters across the span of several days, showing you glimpses of each character's past and fragments of their relationship with someone who had a profound impact on their lives. It's touching without being overwrought, and intense without being self-serious. Its obvious the director feels very much for his subject, and there are some very truthful moments that boldly do not play out for dramatic effect, rather minutia of daily experiences shown through a thoughtful lens.

    The film deliberately avoids resolution, and while that's bound to frustrate a lot of people I think it's key to the movie's success. We are meant to experience all these conflicting viewpoints and perspectives not be given cheap life lessons. Also, I'm again reminded what a phenomenally underrated actor Gabriel Byrne is.

    Thoughtful, internalised drama comedy about grief and human behaviour, it reminded me a little of Moonlight Mile and a little of The Father of my Children. It's exceptionally well acted and beautifully filmed.

    A solid film that has great direction and performances, Byrne and Eisenberg are compelling in the leads. I didn't know what to make of the trailer but word of mouth got the better of me and I found one of the best films of 2016. The film deserved a bigger audience and more award recognition.
