Bill Murray is adorable. The dialogues are excellent. I wanted to see an explosive twist at the end, and even came up with a couple of options, but I had to look at them only in my head. Recommended to watch! Translated to English
I didn’t master it completely, I dropped it after 45 minutes of despondency. Dazh Murray does not draw. I think this is the last straw, we end the relationship with Coppola. For me, she is just a stereotypical female director without her own film language, to whose work I am a little more than completely indifferent. Translated to English
The womanizer father who left the family is trying to help his daughter find evidence of her husband’s infidelity, and the mother and relatives implicitly hint that if she continues to eat french fries and wear vests, then her husband will definitely run away. Can we predict the ending? Naturally. Boring? Highly. Translated to English
Not boring and relaxing. You can look once for the sake of playing Murray, but no more. His character, of course, is not very deep, but he has a certain charisma and attractiveness. Well, the relationship between father and daughter is shown well, «I believe!» Translated to English
Obviously an autobiographical story, a shadow of Lost in Translation. Very detached, but Murray saves everything. His character breathes life into the tape. In general, nothing special, but there’s nothing more to watch especially in 2020… Translated to English
Lightly and subtly on the topic of family relationships and especially about fathers and children, where a small detective line with possible betrayal is just a background. Minimalistic cinema with some charm and personal for S. Coppola. B. Murray is the soul of this film and almost everything rests on it. 6.5 Translated to English
