About the Film
Based on Mordecai Richler's prize-winning comic novel, Barney's Version tells the story of Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti), a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life. Barney’s candid confessional spans four decades and two continents, and includes three wives (Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver and Rachelle Lefevre), one outrageous father (Dustin Hoffman) and a charmingly dissolute best friend (Scott Speedman).
Worth watching for Giamatti's character portrayal.
This is a good movie . If you are in the right mood for just a good plot and very good acting this does not disappoint .Paul Giamatti is just brilliant in this roll I have so much time for him as an actor and without giving too much away his portrayal of his character at the end of the film is quite powerful and moving.
One of those movies that engages you from the very start, beautifully acted by all the cast, a yarn that draws you in and made me want it to go on forever.
Just loved this film, storytelling at it's best, bravo gimme more.
I really enjoyed this film. Quite long at over 2 hours, but engaging and a bit off the wall. Great characters and flowing story.
