I had a chance to watch it there. I won't spoil the ending, but I will discuss certain aspects of the movie that could be considered as spoiler, though I guess nothing that wouldn't be standing in short review of the movie.
Now that that's out of the way, this movie will have a special audience. It's a movie about real life, something quite a few moviegoers go to the cinema to escape from. Because it is too close to life. In this case it was very close to something that happened to me too. Or my father in that case, as the father of the movie here. It has quite a few sub-stories that form the central story, about the sickness of the father.
The trick here of course being, that you get to see the family as it is, before the sickness gets revealed. So it starts off pretty light, but gets heavy, real heavy after that.
If you had a similar experience, I'm not sure you will be able to stomach it (no pun intended). That depends entirely on you (it does not have to be your father, it could be another family member or friend that had this sickness).
