Liam Lacey Globe and Mail There is one little problem with the Argentine drama Empty Nest, an all-too-convincing film about a man suffering from a middle-aged malaise: Nothing of interest happens. Rated: 2/4 Jul 3, 2009 Full Review Jason Anderson Toronto Star Burman's fifth feature is too slight and uneven to fully satisfy, even though it does have much of the same wit and insight as Lost Embrace and Family Law, two previous films that earned the director many comparisons to Woody Allen. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 3, 2009 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times In the end, it all can't help feeling a little slight, more a pleasant wade into a writer's neurotic playground than a satisfyingly deep dip. Rated: 2.5/5 May 1, 2009 Full Review Liz Braun Jam! Movies Empty Nest is light in tone and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and the humour is generally subtle and grown up. Rated: 3/5 Jul 3, 2009 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Film-Forward.com A leisurely, genial look at a man escaping from his insecurities into a surreal fantasy life, keeping the audience guessing what is real, until he floats into maturity. Rated: 8/10 May 5, 2009 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International Tasteful and intelligent to a fault, but critically lacking in truly absorbing excitement.

Audience Member As his "Lost Embrace". So so. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Burman, OM, CR... genial! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This drama needs more work. It's a story about a drama that a middle-aged argentinean couple faces when their kids have grown up and left home. However, the director wasn't able to explote correctly the crisis that a man and a woman can face at those moments. I found it a little bit forced and lame and plain Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Un buen retazo de cine y soberbias actuaciones. Aun asi, le falta un "hervor"... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member empty nest is an EMPTY FILM. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie to think about life. Its a kind of movie on which you predict nothing and is a movie about the everyday life. I meant you see people doing usual things most of the time. The most fascinating part is that you have to make the story with the little clues it gives you. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
