A searing documentary about family…The details of Asimakopoulos’ difficult past create an intense focus on family dynamics that winds up revealing more about our similarities than our differences. Over and above all, you’ll fall in love with the filmmaker’s parents.
A gentle affair, involving drug addiction, a lot of yelling and over-attentive mothering. A likeable heartfelt diary film that aims for emotional catharsis and…hits the target.
As compelling as anything by Eugene O’Neill, but with more lamb.
Giving the audience reason to squirm in their seats, this exploration of self as an amalgamation of past signifiers impresses with its sheer honesty and openness, treating the subject without slant or bias to give us the bigger picture of what connects a family.
The journey Asimakopoulos takes us on makes for a compulsive, sad, funny and profoundly moving experience
