To understand why we no longer call home.
Direction: Francois Ozon Distribution: Sophie Marceau, André Dussollier, Charlotte Rampling, Hannah Schygulla, Géraldine Pailhas, Eric Caravaca, Gregory Gadebois Original title: Tout s’est bien passé Country: France Year: 2021 Release date: 01-28-2022 Gender: Drama Script: Francois Ozon. Novel: Emmanuele Bernheim Photography: Hichame Alaouié Synopsis: Emmanuèle, a novelist with a full private and professional life, rushes to the hospital upon learning that her father, André, has just had a stroke. When he wakes up, weak and dependent, this man, curious by nature and passionate lover of life, asks his daughter to help him.
François Ozon molds the virtues of French dramedy to address the work, emotional and material, that a daughter must carry when her father, who has suffered a stroke, asks her to help him end it all. There where the easy tear and the lazy smile would fit, the film twists with the roughness of the pullitas that we inherited from our grandparents, some bastards, but always ours. Perhaps the memory of them is truly emotional.
However, the old man lies and manipulates, he hides behind the rags that hang from his eyes like a kind of tragic mask. To cry to tears, he will say, stumbling and hiding his fragility behind an inert face. As always, it will be up to the women of the family (her daughter and sister, whom the father despises) to build a psychological picture that justifies the acts of said emotional illiterate. From an awakened classicism, Ozon probes the borders between bond, attachment, esteem and oppression… And puts his finger on the sore spot: does it hurt?
