C'mon C'mon

C'mon C'mon ★★★★

C’mon C’mon is another deeply humane and empathetic film from Mike Mills, reliant on the fantastic chemistry between Joaquin Phoenix and Woody Norman. 

Mike Mills is relentlessly adept at exploring the relatable quirks of human interaction, C’mon C’mon is a wonderful example of his ability to explore themes of human connection in a non superficial and deeply real way. Once again Mills explores a relationship with a young child and an older relative, and his patience and compassionate storytelling allow for the characters to feel relatable, and for the films themes of loss and uncertain futures to be examined universally.  

Joaquin gives his most humane and gentle performance since Her and his amiable nature offers a platform for the fantastic Woody Norman. On a technical level the film has no notable faults, the score is wonderfully meandering, the black and white cinematography is immersive and Jennifer Vecchiarello’s editing is fantastic. The film uses flashbacks in an interesting and effective way. 
C’mon C’mon affirms Mills’ first class ability to tell simplistic but deeply profound human stories.
