Watch: Broken Flowers 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – The resolutely single Don Johnston has just been dumped by his latest lover, Sherry. Don resigns himself to being alone yet again and left to his own devices. Instead, he is compelled to reflect on his past when he receives by mail a mysterious pink letter. It is from an anonymous former lover and informs him that he has a 19-year-old son who may now be looking for his father. Don is urged to investigate this “mystery” by his closest friend and neighbor, Winston, an amateur sleuth and family man. Hesitant to travel at all, Don nonetheless embarks on a cross-country trek in search of clues from four former flames. Unannounced visits to each of these unique women hold new surprises for Don as he haphazardly confronts both his past and, consequently, his present..
Plot: As the devoutly single Don Johnston is dumped by his latest girlfriend, he receives an anonymous pink letter informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him.

Completely open to interpretation
Whether it was (shrewdly) planned or not, Bill Murray has become one of our greatest cinematic resources, just as comfortable doing dry comedy as he is acting in a mood piece; his whole melancholy being has become perfect for avant-garde comedy, and this meticulously-mounted and shaded ‘dramedy’ is a Bill Murray vehicle all the way. The loosely-structured plot deals with calling up the past, which it says you can’t really do because it’s gone, and not worrying about the future because it isn’t here yet. Murray plays a computer businessman, a committed bachelor and “over-the-hill Don Juan”, who receives news he might have fathered a child with an ex-girlfriend 20 years ago. The film, helmed under the more effective title “Dead Flowers”, is an unintended journey of self-discovery which is purposely incomplete but not pointless; the screenplay leaves the scenario open for discussion, and writer-director Jim Jarmusch structures each sequence in such a cockeyed way that we don’t really know where the movie is headed. This is perfect for audiences interested in something a little different, and even if the pacing is dryly solemn or slow, the picture delights in being anti-formula. A very good film, difficult as an entertainment per se and often puzzling or obtuse, though it continues Bill Murray on the path of an actor of incredible taste, decision and consequence. *** from ****

The Lack Of Resolution Is A Major Problem
Bill Murray’s performance as Don is both low-key and largely emotionless. While this might be a criticism in most cases, here it was a good job of acting. Don was a guy who was largely repressed (some might say depressed) who spent most of his time it seems sitting on his couch watching television. This simple existence is suddenly shattered when he receives an anonymous letter, apparently from an ex-flame, telling him that he has a 19 year old son who’s trying to find him. Armed with the letter, and the help of his neighbour Winston, who’s an amateur detective of some sort, Don sets out to discover who wrote the letter.

As the movie progresses, Don’s search introduces us to five old flames – one of whom is deceased. The other four are all very different from one another. They’re not “interesting” per se – because the characters aren’t sufficiently developed to allow them to become interesting – but they’re “curiosities.” There’s Laura (Sharon Stone), an apparently needy woman with a daughter who is probably the most noteworthy character in the film as she parades naked (and we’re talking full-frontal) in front of Don (whom she’s never met) while he waits for her mother’s return; there’s Dora (Frances Conroy), who’s now a successful real estate sales person in partnership with her husband; there’s Carmen (Jessica Lange) who’s some sort of animal psychologist who can talk to and for animals; and there’s Penny (Tilda Swinton) who’s descended into a bit of a hick, hillbilly style of life. Don’s encounters with them are all interesting to watch, but they don’t last very long. There seemed to be a lot of empty filler included in this in which little or nothing happens (long shots of oncoming traffic as Don drives, and other similar types of filler.) Since the movie lacked any truly sustained emotion or drama to hold your interest, the point of watching becomes to figure out who the mother and son are. That – to me – is where this movie truly disappointed. There’s no resolution at all. Nothing is ever revealed about the thing about the movie that’s truly interesting. I have nothing in particular against loose ends, but in a move where tying up the loose ends is the only reason to keep slogging away that’s a major weakness. 3/10
