    What's an essentially a stage-play which could've with some modifications been made by Richard Linklater is held up by the amazing actors in the lead (and only) roles. They are all displaying 4 types of humanbeings which are unable to leave a room like if there were some higher cause that held them together (see Luis Buñuels La Angel Extraminador). The parts of the film is better than the film as a whole piece. I thought that the film turned…

    Um dos piores filmes de Polanski, um filme enfadonho, com um elenco ótimo mas desperdiçado e com atuações exageradas, principalmente de Jodie Foster e Kate Winslet, uma pena!

    A minor work from all involved. It is a bit of a shaggy dog story since the meltdown of the characters is more important than the contents of their conversation. A lot of the "points" are very obvious and, while written well enough, are performance dependent. Lucky us, the actors are up for it. I can not imagine having paid full ticket price to see this 80 minute movie, which hardly shakes its obvious stage origins. It is good for one time through, if you like anyone involved , as part of a streaming service and that's it.

    Two pairs of parents hold a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a fight, though as their time together progresses, increasingly childish behavior throws the discussion into chaos.
    A stagebound script is turned into a wildy entertaining (and even realistic) black comedy thanks to professional direction a cast all at the top of their art.

    Roman Polanski can't direct a comedy for SHIT.

    A funny, entirely dialog driven film that is once again set in essentially one location. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and everyone performed exceptionally well.

    Never been a huge fan of Waltz when he's being comedic, but he nails it in this film.

    Painfully accurate. A brilliant showcase of american parents and how protective they are of their kids and their morals and priorities. It's refreshing to watch grown parents arguing like children. Like a modern version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

    Very good study on social behavior. The transposition from the play to the film is great, because the film can concentrate in small gestures, gazes, facial expressions.
    It's a pity that Jodie Foster's performance is so incredibly bad, so much that it can compromise the integrity of the entire work.

    In one hour and twenty minutes this film achieves so much. Christoph, Kate, Jodie and John all give strong, and standout performances, in their own way.

    The reason why I love it is because of how true it is and how the writing really showed them crumble. It's successful because of how amusing it is to watch them all completely fall apart.

    With a cast like that it's absolutely mind-boggling that the weakest part of the film can be the acting...
