Critic Reviews for The Farewell Party

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (15)

For all its talk of death, The Farewell Party, featuring a terrific ensemble cast, is a story about life. Always honest, graceful and funny it explores with deep compassion its characters familial and romantic relationships.

June 19, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's taking a strong stand on the morality of mercy killing, no doubt, but it also acknowledges the precious glory of life. It's a rare film that can smile while studying suffering.

A bittersweet, wryly comic, keenly observed look at senescence from Israeli directors Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit.

June 11, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The gags in the movie's first half are so unapologetically mordant that I was disappointed to see them dwindle to nothing in the second, as so often happens in stories like this one.

I can't recall any film ever making me laugh and cry in complete comic and dramatic balance like "The Farewell Party."

June 11, 2015 | Full Review…

It never lapses into mawkishness, but remains clear-eyed and compassionate. It's not coldly clinical; instead, the characters are treated with grace and respect.
