DirectorCast

Eugène GreenVictor Ezenfis, Natacha Régnier, Fabrizio Rongione

France, Belgium / 2016 / 113 minutes / DCP

The Nativity story recast as a contemporary comedy of misplaced paternity. Filled with millefeuille layering of theological symbolism, the film follows a teenager seeking his biological father, only to find an arrogant philanderer. Planning revenge, he runs into the benevolent Joseph, who becomes his surrogate father figure. Green’s (La Sapienza, 39th) eccentric technique of characters looking straight to the camera connects audiences to his peculiar universe of cynicism, fused with the elegance of classical theatre and baroque art.
