        Very moving, and there just never seems to be a dull moment. This is supposed to be a true story, also, which amazes me. At the end it tells you that the boy in the story grew up and did well in his life. Sheesh. If he can, anyone can because this family (this boy especially) went through one horrible time after another. Eric Bana did a wonderful job playing the father. I have never paid much attention to him before, but now I have seen a side of his acting that leaves me at awe. Really great movie.

        There's much to admire about actor Richard Roxburgh's directorial debut, Romulus, My Father. A sensitive evocation of a childhood rendered moot by the psychological damages inflicted by troubled parents, the picture has a tranquil, gentle nature about it that's almost soothing, while offering examples of familial terror Roxburgh processes superbly. It's fitting perhaps that a film based on Rai Gaita's memoirs should play rather like a string of memories; we don't remember the past in a linear story but as patches, chapters, moments, sometimes merely fractions of their entirety. The darkness of the story is counterbalanced by some of the most radiantly beautiful cinematography I've seen in a long time. Builds up an emotional head of steam that draws audiences towards it. Enjoy!

        A touching tale based on the true story of Raimond Gaita's childhood & the relation of his parents. Richard Roxburgh examines the lives of Raimond's parents when they emigrated to Australia in 1950. Raimond's mother suffers from depression & leaves him & her husband . Cinematography is beautiful. Eric Bana is brilliant as Romulus while Franka Potente delivers an intense performance. Raimond Guita is now a famous author & this movie was based on his autobiographical novel.

        A nice movie, but a little slow for me.
