Just try to watch a Godard film and not want to smoke a cigarette. I dare you.
In terms of Rohmer movies, this one ranks low for me. That being said, there’s still things to love here - great dialogue, stylish costumes, and the Rohmer touch is always present. But these characters do nothing for me.

Maybe the best use of diegetic music in any film. The cinematography and editing was also top notch.
I was going to make a pun about the movie being a “slow-burn” but I’ll refrain from that, I suppose.

I don’t say this lightly, The Father is one of the most terrifying, heartbreaking films I’ve seen in a very long time. A masterclass in non-linear storytelling.
*IF THE FATHER DOESN'T WIN THE OSCAR FOR BEST EDITING I’LL BE FURIOUS*
