At first glance, “My Father” is a simple film that revolves around an elderly man with Alzheimer’s disease. Nothing we haven’t seen before. But this is only at first glance. Whoever looks a little closer will however notice the extent of the commitment proposed by the director and screenwriter Florian Zeller. He seeks to express, first through theater and then through cinema, the state of mental confusion of patients unable to express this confusion. Everything is imagination, but an imagination very close to what this disease is, in our worst nightmares. Whether the bet is worth it is what we’ll discuss in this episode of Quarantine Cult. Oh, and the movie also has Anthony Hopkins.
