I'm the second to review this? I borrowed this film from a local French library. I sat down with a coffee and was entranced with from beginning to end.
The film is about the relationship between a father and son. The son returns to France and to life after several years in an American gaol. The son wants to begin relations with his father anew but the father has trouble with that idea.
You could say that the father is someone who is strict and has trouble expressing his feelings and opening himself up. He is ruthlessly unforgiving with his son. This is not a one dimensional character and thats what makes him so intriguing.
Equally Partick Deweare, whom I've come to know and love, is enchantic as the son. He oozes charm and his mere presence on the screen without saying a word conveys so many things.
The two fight and make up then fight and make up, and like another reviewer said the director takes the time to film them preparing coffee. Even that is fascinating in this film. A true find for me and pure cinematic gem. Enjoy!
