LE FILS DE JOSEPH
France | 2016 | Eugene Green
The new film from one of our favorite directors, Eugène Green (The Portuguese Nun, La Sapienza), is an offbeat comedy about a sullen Parisian teenager, living with his single mom, who is so tired of not knowing who is father is that he actively takes steps to find out. With Mathieu Amalric. “There’s everything we’ve come to expect in a Green film—crystalline poetry, beguiling formal control, religious and spiritual matters treated seriously yet lightly, impassive acting, Baroque art and music—but with some new elements…Green is a master and this may be his most pleasurable film to date.” –Sight & Sound. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 113 min.
