Our Father is a touching, honest film about what happens when a troubled man, a father, keeps secrets bottled up all his life; if not for his dementia, they would have stayed buried forever. Lucky—or unlucky—for his son, they didn't.
The film has reenactment, pain, understanding, and perhaps a little closure. This man's son will never see him the same way again and, from a single moment of clarity, can perhaps begin to forgive his mistakes. Beautifully shot and acted, this 20-minute film (shot almost entirely in a bathroom) has more emotion in it than some features have from beginning to end.
I'm so proud of Our Father.
