THE FILM OF THE DAY

With The Father, Florian Zeller signs his first feature film, adapted from his own play. He then realized his dream of working with Anthony Hopkins, who played a father suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. A subject that the director tackles with virtuosity through the image (transformation of the decor into a mental labyrinth, repetitive use of the same slightly offset frames) and sound (that of the violin that the archer touches in the soundtrack), thus plunging the spectator into the head of its protagonist.

At 84, Anthony Hopkins is playing one of his finest roles, winning the Oscar for Best Actor. With an average of 4.3 out of 5, The Father is in first position in the Top 10 cinema 2021 of spectators (according to AlloCiné spectator ratings, as of Friday, December 24, 2021, for films with at least 600 ratings).
