Product Description

Amazon.ca

The initial concept of this remarkably poignant film may not be sexy, but it's well-executed and genuinely touching and easily brings its audience into the moving story. J.P. Tannen (Jon Voight), a divorced, absentee father, takes his three children, Tilde (a beautiful, heartbreaking Roxana Zal), Truman-Paul (Robby Kiger), and Trung (Son Hoang Bui), on a European cruise, during which a tragedy occurs at home. The emotionally charged setup of a father trying to reconnect with his children may be familiar to many people. Versatile writer David Seltzer (Lucas) melds realistic dialogue, conversations, situations, and reactions in a subtle, credible manner, giving his characters many levels and sincere depth. It's this realism that makes the story all that more compelling--Tannen is neither ogre nor saint, and his children are like real children: they're embarrassed by their insecurities, they act out, they crave affection. There are no one-dimensional characters either. Tannen and his ex-wife (Millie Perkins) maintain a distant fondness for each other, as she understands and finally accepts his foibles. Her husband, Mitchell (Richard Crenna), genuinely loves Tannen's children as he would his own. Party of Five is blessed with great talent, including the youngest stars. --N.F. Mendoza

A Real Weeper June 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is one of those movies that is perfect for those days when you feel like a good cry. Just imagine a marathon of Penny Serenade, Terms of Endearment (when she sees her kids for the last time!) and add Table for Five to that list. Maybe it was just the mood I was in, or I am not properly medicated, but this was a terrific tearjerker. Well written, acted, and filmed, it is a great flick!

A man bridges a gap with his children... Jan. 5 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Jon Voight plays a divorced father of three, who rarely sees his kids, remembers their birthdays, and generally isn't much of a parent. The role of parent to the kids belongs to his beautiful ex-wife, played by Millie Perkins, and her current husband, a loving man played by Richard Crenna. Voight arrives to take his children on their yearly vacation together, and it turns out to be a Mediterranean cruise. During the cruise, the love he has for his kids is evident as well as the unfamiliarity he has with playing the father and putting his kids first. But when a tragedy strikes back home, Voight must decide if taking on the role of father permanently is something he can and wants to do...

Overlooked gem Oct. 28 2004

A very emotional, well-acted piece of work by Jon Voight. Perhaps his best acting ever. Don't miss this one.

One of the most HUMAN films it has ever been my good fortune to watch..The entire cast just walks into your heart and sets up permanent housekeeping..Voight is so human and Roxanne Zal is the type of daughter every father would want....She must be in her 30's by now and I pray she has the sucessful career and happy life she deserves..If you want to spend time with REAL people catch this masterpiece...God Love Everyone who helped make this the heartwarming experience is most certainly is...

Worth Watching May 30 2006
By AzureBlu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I grew up with this flick watching it many times and even now I cry just as much as I did when I first watched the movie many years ago. The music is beautiful and it matches the mood of it after the "tragic" accident. A scene that really pulled the emotional strings for me was the family dog silently crying lying on the ground while she was pregnant with her puppies.

If you're in a good mood for a major tear-jerker. This will definately fit the bill.
