    Bill Murray (Lost in Translation) stars in the comedic story of an aging Don Juan who hits the road on a revealing and humorous cross-country journey. When a mysterious pink letter informs Don Johnston (Murray) that he may have a 19-year-old son, he visits four former lovers, where he comes face to face with the errors of his past and the possibilities of the future. From acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch and co-starring Sharon Stone, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Tilda Swinton, and Jeffrey Wright, Broken Flowers is the highly original comedy that Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says is "filled with wonderful mischief" and "brings out the best in Bill Murray."

    Bill Murray is fantastic in this film.
    lastofthewild1s
    Unfortunately, in this film, it served in a negative way by portraying characters that are entirely one dimensional.
    A. Elizabeth Simpson
    It was just a bit too slow for my taste and I really don't care for open endings like this.

    For filmgoers who are looking for a funny Bill Murray movie like Caddy Shack, you will be disappointed. But if you can watch this film just for the pure joy of watching the collision of the baggage of the past meeting the present and the fun that ensues, then you will really appreciate this wonderful film.

    Jarmusch unravels the illusion of "Don Juan" as Don faces the fact that his past lovers are either uncomfortable with him or he's uncomfortable with them and none of them are forthcoming with any information as to whether he's left a trail of kids behind.

    Until your middle aged and reflect on the past and realize the choices you've made are what molded your present situation, AND see that perhaps you could have made better choices, then this film won't make any sense to you. Jarmusch beautifully photographs (and scripts) the accident that is 21st century "middle age" for a man who's fought his way through a quagmire of womens lib, empowerment, equality, the pill, feminism and every other end of the 20th century battle of the sexes that has left the modern male alone, childless and confused.

    Jarmusch's style is to just points his camera at the characters and let this reality unfold... subtly - and it's unpredictable, funny, sad, scary, absurd, awkward and beautiful all at the same time.

    Like reality, don't expect a happy or easy ending. By the time the final scene rolls, neither the view nor Don knows if he really HAS a son or not, if he really WANTS to have a son or not, or if every time he turns around and sees a young man about 19 years old - is he going to wonder... is that kid mine?

    For all around fun and unexpected surprises in human dynamics, Jim Jarmusch is a modern master.

    Jarmusch's movie is startling and bold, in a somnolent sort of way. Jarmusch is all about symbolism, and Murray is perfect for the role of Don Johnston, a wealthy bachelor who lives through life, seemingly emotionless. His angst over losing girlfriend Julie Delpy at the film's beginning, is buried deeply, and shown only in the way he sleeps and wakes...a deadish man who makes a feeble attempt to talk Delpy into staying. As she leaves, the mail she leaves contains a letter from an old lover who doesn't identify herself, other than to say that Johnston has a son who is 19 years old.

    Enter Don's neighbor, Winston (the very capable Jeffrey Wright). His life is 180 degrees away from his friend Don's. His house, bursting at the seams with his glowing wife and 5 children, is full of toys. Despite the fact that he has three jobs, he is writing a mystery novel. Don's mysterious letter (in a pink envelope) is a goldmine for Winston, and he determines that Don will pursue this mystery, and must provide a list of potential mothers - lovers from 20 years prior.

    From the reluctantly prepared list Winston culls not only addresses, he mapquests the instructions to reach each house and books Don's flights and rental cars. Don is reluctant, but can't afford to turn down this slice of life that Winston offers. He embarks on the journey.

    The movie breaks down a little for me here...the repetitive shots of Don flying in and out of airports get on one's nerves, particularly since Don never seems to go anywhere different. The five women are all located off the beaten path from each airport, and Jarmusch is careful not to identify the cities with landmarks.

    I saw this beautiful sleeper of a movie back to back with "A History of Violence". "Broken Flowers' was a perfect antidote to a cynical re-hashed Western about a 'gunslinger' revisited by trouble.

    The sad thing is that so many people thought that "Violence" had very deep things to say about America. I think that Jim Jarmusch knows more about America than David Cronenberg, and I'm grateful.

    "Broken Flowers", as others have remarked, has the character of a waking dream. Bill Murray's shipwrecked Don Juan emerges in the beginning of the film from a cave-like bachelor's lair and walks into the sunshine of real life, looking (as always) rumpled and frowsy and not entirely awake. Through a sequence of gorgeous days, he pursues the chimaera of an unknown son that he may have sired twenty years earlier. He makes a tour of old acquaintances, and realizes some bittersweet lessons about life, such as, "be careful what you wish for... that son who's looking for you may not be the idealized version of yourself that you would like him to be...(if he indeed does exist)."

    The places that Murray visits seem like classic slices of Americana, archetypes that exist in our collective unconscious: the little yellow house with junk in the yard, the huge tomb-like McMansion where Murray finds himself being served a 'happy meal'.

    I loved this movie! It's a movie populated with actresses and actors who are allowed to 'act their age'. It's got a great score, and a great look. It will make you feel good about life...life with its inevitable disappointments, still beautiful and still worth living.
