Forget Hollywood remakes; this is one film I’d like to see reworked by an arthouse director and a pack of actors with smaller names and bigger reserves of subtlety (Rockwell can keep his role, though). The literalist approach of British director Kirk Jones (‘Nanny McPhee’) sucks all
interest from Frank’s travels, and rarely has a neat ending seemed less appropriate. Phone cables are being superseded, but our connections with loved ones fray and corrode forever.

The most "true to life" flick to come along in a long time! Heart wrenching! Down to earth drama and great reflection of real life!
Just caught this on hotel tv. Pretty much one of the worst films of my lifetime. Seemed line it should have been called "on the brink of ending" with the worst and longest closing scenes I've ever seen. DeNiro really needs to learn to say no.
