About this movie

Anthony is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne, encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her?

Vraiment un bon film. Hopkins est un acteur incroyable. Dans ce film il est époustouflant. Du grand art. Ils sont tous bons. Et le scénario est intéressant. J'aime comment on démontre l'ambiguïté, la détresse, le combat face à la maladie. Grandiose. Un film à voir absolument.

The father is an excellent film. Completely agree that this is Anthony Hopkins' best performance of his career. You feel his confusion in the movie and it is very hard to watch. It left me moved.

Wonderful acting from Sir Hopkins, very touching & moving. Ingenious idea to have the viewer feel Alzheimer's disease from the sufferer's perspective.
