I know this is probably a great film for those that like this kind of drama. Massive line up, but not for me!

Wow for en filmoplevelse! Selve historien er godt skrevet og ville umiddelbart fungere mindst ligeså godt på et teater. Man bliver som seer ført ind i sindet på en syg, og oplever samtidig familiens og de pårørendes ofre i en sådan situation. Krydret med Hopkins og Colmans fantastiske skuespilpræstationer er der ingen tvivl om at denne film rører og overrasker. En flot film!

Wow. I am speechless. Oscar worthy performances by both Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman. I never thought I would be engrossed by a movie about an old man having dementia but here I am and I admit it, the ground was lifted beneath my feet. Tears of sadness engulf my heart thinking how many old people have to go through this terrible disease. The movie is a masterpiece. It manages to make you experience what it feels like to have dementia!! The end broke me. A very very important movie that kids and adults alike should watch!!! Update: i just found out he won the Oscar for his performance in this!!! If anyone deserved it, it was him!!!!!

Wow I was not expecting that!!!! what a movie to experience!!!this movie deserves every reward it got. This is one the best mental illness movie to come out in recent years speaking on Dementia and a idea of what it is to actually have it. This movie was lilterally a horror movie within it self and the portrayal was really raw and scary . Anthony Hopkins just proves once again why he is a legend he was really perfect in this. It is so emotional and gut punching for sure. I can't recommend this enough.

The most important fact of this movie is that it shows the fact from first person's perspective, we don't understand what the person is feeling but this movie portray's thing so nicely.

Absolutely loved the performances in this film, especially from the powerhouse that is Anthony Hopkins. However, I didn't feel like the story totally worked for me as I would have liked a little more closure narratively. I understand the open endedness of the piece was suitable for the central themes, but for me, I would have liked it to have been a bit clearer.

A touching, realistic, fantastic film. Not a minute of this film I don’t enjoy. Director walks us through the real life of an Alzheimer person, and no word can describe my feeling. Bravo.

I was blown away by this. Such an incredible and clever film. The writing captures so many of the catchphrases I’ve heard in my own experience which made it both hilarious and heartfelt. There is no doubt that this was an Oscar winning performance. Truly amazing.

One of the best solo acting performances I have seen in a long while. For Sir Anthony Hopkins to deliver a performance like so at such an age is an unbelievable achievement and he will go down in history as one of the greats. This movie brings awareness to the horror that is Dementia/Alzheimers and doesn’t hold back at all. It is highly emotional throughout, touching and upsetting. However, it is a must watch and deserved the applauds it received from the Academy last week. Despite the limited locations used in this picture, Hopkins carries through and makes the movie great. What an actor! Tell me what you think of this one... I was inspired by what Anthony Hopkins did in this film and it just proves that age is just a number 8/10

Anthony Hopkins er intet mindre end genialt, som den demente ældre mand. Filmen er lavet og klippet på en måde, der får dig til selv at blive desorienteret. Genialt!

Led by stellar performances and artfully helmed by writer-director Florian Zeller, The Father presents a devastatingly empathetic portrayal of dementia.
