La folie Almayer

Belgium, France, 2011
Drama
      French

Synopsis

Somewhere in Southeast Asia, 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. A story of passion, loss and madness.

Our take

In her last narrative feature film, Chantal Akerman’s 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.
