Boring!!! Here is a father and son story that is far-fetched and whimsical. The father, by repeatedly telling the same stories a thousand times, has become the stories himself. The son, at the father’s death-bed, tries very hard to get to know his father, the person beyond the stories.
The fantasy scenes and mythical scenes are ineffective though elaborate and done with attention to details. The story becomes somewhat interesting each time it comes back to ‘real’ after the flashbacks.
The impressive cast has done a good job, but the movie is still disappointing.
