It's a tired formula. But saving graces come from two fine performances, the criminally underrated Brian Cox as high-maintenance Sir Michael and newcomer Coco Konig as Dorottya, who's plucky, compassionate and wise.
he Hungarian director portrays, with the right amount of irony and tenderness, a relationship between two totally different people... [Full review in Spanish]
The movie's virtues make it possible to watch with some pleasure, but its failings limit that pleasure, which certainly cannot make up for the flaws.
Konig, despite serving up one or two touching moments, rarely convinces either as a kindly carer or as an aspiring actress.
Those who love Shakespeare and great British acting should not pass up The Carer.
It's only a small step from Scent of a Woman, but Cox elevates it with one of his strongest performances.
This slender piece about a famous actor begrudgingly accepting his young caregiver as he's gradually succumbing to Parkinson's is sentimental and doesn't care much about character backstory or development. But it's entertaining as hell.
A simultaneously pretentious and amateurish luvviefest.
This is Cox's show, and he dives fully into the role of a cantankerous, hammy old thespian who isn't remotely ready to go gentle into that good night.
A dyspeptic comedy that quickly gives in to sentimentality ... any dramatic tension dissolves into tepid manipulation.
...feels as if it belongs on the small screen.
Cox's timing throughout is superb -- a comic masterclass that gives way to storms of temper worthy of Lear.
