Single Father onlineHard fate, to remain a widower with young children - and few people manage to get out of such misfortune with honor. It was this kind of grief that lay in wait for the protagonist of the film "Lonely Father", his beloved wife died, and four children remained in his arms. For their sake, you need to live on. And then there's the wife's best friend, as best she can, to support the orphaned family. And what will come of this, and whether the main characters can find peace and happiness, viewers will be able to find out by watching this series, a wonderful lesson in life.
In my opinion, the film can cause opposite opinions in viewers after watching: one moment you are for the hero, and the next - there is a feeling of an unfinished situation, and you look forward to what should happen now. The hero of the picture, despite the long years of life together, still loves his wife, this is confirmed by the farewell scene. The spouse, who is dying, reciprocates and says the main words "I love you." By a moment of wind they reach him and he answers her: "I love you too." One can only envy the deep connection between people when such situations arise. But after the death of his wife, a little time passes, and for me personally it is not clear how Dave (husband) could fall in love with his wife's best friend and commit unshakable deeds. Only one thing is interesting, I understand that a person cannot live alone all his life, but the actions in the picture quickly change the plan of action. Of course, everyone will have a question about the feelings that he had for his deceased wife. The director of the film tries to convey the answer to this question through the prism of their relationship and her character. Sometimes there are feelings that Rita - Dave's wife, cheated on him. In general, the ending of the film can completely confuse the viewer with its illogicality. Dave plays the role of not only a loving husband, but at the same time his task is to be a caring father of five children. And the relationship between them is also not logical. You may feel that Dave is a wonderful and caring father, but after Rita's death, he changes before our eyes. Attempts to become an exemplary father end as soon as he tries to mend a relationship with Sarah. Children at the same moment are relegated to the background (confirmation can be the scene when Dave, in front of Iva, tries to seduce his new passion, Lucy gives her to her biological father, and the relationship with Paul and Tanya can be reduced to zero). There is a dissonance in the film. But most of all, Dave is attracted by his self-development, he does not give up and tries to fix everything, although he does not always succeed. He is not perfect and even sloppy, both in life and in relationships, but he is madly in love with his children. Taking his life as such, he tries to work on himself and for the sake of children becomes better. In the film, this is noticeable in relation to the family, since Lucy is not his own daughter, but she becomes such when he confesses to him: "Stewart is my biological father, and you are my DADDY." Eve waits for him every day after work to spend time alone with him, Evan does not lag behind and even in not the most honest ways tries to be in Dave's attention. Paul is very religious, but even at his age he tries to take over homework. Lucy, after their frank conversation, without regret chooses him, and not Stuart - biological dad. The eldest daughter Tanya forgives him all his actions. For the sake of their beloved mother, they accept Sarah as Dave's future wife and this proves their love for Dave. The film touches the innermost feelings of your heart. A very informative picture, despite all the inconsistencies that I listed above. After all, Dave, as is typical for an ordinary person, makes mistakes in his life, which he then corrects. Feeling his guilt and wrong, he turns over his idea, both about children and about the relationship between a man and a woman. In my opinion, the best play of actor David Tennant, who managed to portray and convey all the inner experiences of the film's hero.
I am amazed at the ability of the British to make a great movie in a seemingly empty space! And how could this happen? She lived an ordinary, moderately happy family - a father, a mother and four children. And then grief happens - the mother dies, and the father has to put on a good face at the disgusting game. This plot is worthy of a series filmed at a homegrown Russian studio with actors recruited from a nearby gateway! However, no. David Tennant ... And now, finally, Tennant really is, and not some Doctor who, by a misunderstanding, was dressed in other people's clothes. He, of course, looks like his forty, but even with bags under his eyes, he looks more like a teenager who himself needs a guardian. And the fact that the hero already has a grandson is at least shocking and makes him twitch his eye nervously. His behavior is also appropriate: the line that he most often utters in the film is a profound "Yes-ah", and this at a time when they are trying to get through to him for some reason. He cries, is sad, suffers, he tries to shift most of the problems onto the shoulders of strangers, after which he asks in despair: "And what should I do with this?" Therefore, often there is a desire to just kill Tennat ... but nevertheless, it was this film that could breathe new strength into me, and made me believe - believe in David's talent. Music is the second cold-blooded killer in this film. Murray Gold's inherent keys and rhythm, an inexplicable sound that rises up and down, and a melody that looks like an endless spiral. Probably compliments addressed to this person will never stop coming out of my mouth. But most of all I was pleased that the film did not grow into a story about hard-core social workers who are trying with all their might to tear apart such a close-knit family. In the Tyler family (I wonder if there are other surnames in England at all?) And without them there are enough "cockroaches". To a greater extent, this is a film based on a single father and several other people very similar to real people, mainly from his environment. It doesn't matter that the finale has nothing to do with the general atmosphere, and the fact that it took me two episodes to understand how many children there are in the family, and two more to understand who belongs to whom. And the fact that in a few hours the heroes manage to do a lot of stupid things. But the film leaves a delightful aftertaste. Which makes you repeatedly send admiring curses towards the creators.It would seem an ordinary drama, but how did everyone do it, devils ...
