CGiii Comment

A man stops at the Draguignan station, in the south of France, and shows up unexpectedly in the driveway of the villa where his father, whom he hasn’t seen for six years, lives. It will be a heated confrontation through blows of love, hate, nostalgia and tenderness.

Paul Vecchiali’s latest film is one of the most beautiful films of 2023, a candid testament that, with lively and trembling dialogues, turns the spotlight on a melodrama of intimacy, punctuated by the sentences and the looks of the two main actors. If in Cervo’s eyes we can see the double engine of attraction and repulsion for a never accommodating father, in Vecchiali’s faces we can see his entire career, his fiery close-ups and his impossible loves. A long passionate dialogue, a good morning to language, a wish that it can return to being communication and embrace.
