Astonishing, inventive, soulful - and very funny.
6 April 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a film with great heart.

It is witty, warm, surprising, courageous - an impeccably crafted comedy enriched by moments of high drama, deep poignancy, tender romance, and deft revelation.

The premise is simple: Felix Mandel, a sentimental, well-meaning dreamer, donates his deceased father's old overcoat to a homeless derelict, only to find himself haunted - and taunted - by collect calls from Heaven, as Papa demands, "Get back that coat!"

Father and son are soon bickering, relishing this fresh opportunity to rehash old issues. As their exchanges become more tempestuous, the long-distance phone bills grow more exorbitant and Felix's predicaments more desperate. But the drollery takes some unexpected turns, and we are led delicately into the deeper implications of this situation.

Adroitly directed by Arthur Joffe and vividly enacted by a superb cast featuring a mesmerizing, multi-hued performance from Sergio Castellito, this seemingly simple comedy embraces the complexities of our deepest human longings for connection, reconciliation, redemption, love.

It offers not only charm but nobility, grace. hope...and lots of laughs!
