Synopsis

In the late fifties in Malaysia, the country finds itself under English domination after many trials and tribulations. In a little lost village on a wide and turbulent river, a European man clings to his pipe dreams out of love for his daughter.

Our take

In her last narrative feature film, Chantal Akerman alternately structured an organic visual language—patient, intense, emotive long-takes—demonstrating a director’s complete command of form. An ambitious adaptation that refocuses and subverts its source material: the debut novel of Joseph Conrad.
