Critic Reviews for Da

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

It is almost impossible, seeing this film, not to think of your parents in a new light, as people who, amazingly, did not have all of the answers and did not even know some of the questions.

A heart-affecting look at a challenging father- son relationship.
