The Son of Joseph
Directed by Eugène Green
The Son of Joseph
Produced by Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne
The American-born expatriate filmmaker Eugène Green exists in his own special artistic orbit. His latest movie, The Son of Joseph, is perhaps his most buoyant. A nativity story reboot that gently skewers French cultural pretensions, it features newcomer Victor Ezenfis as a discontented Parisian teenager in search of a father with Mathieu Amalric and Fabrizio Rongione as his, respectively, callous and gentle alternative paternal options, and Natacha Régnier as his single mother.
"Droll, adorable...Shot through with an intensely pleasurable intellectual playfulness, this is the American-born French director’s most accomplished and surprising film to date, boasting his trademark thoughtfulness and precision, yet also being almost puppyishly easy to love." -Indiewire
"Green makes films for anyone willing to enter his peculiar universe of expressive purity and (mostly) suspended cynicism, to which “Joseph” reps one of his most beguiling invitations." -Variety
"Utterly delightful slow-motion farce lopes through revelations of identities...Just lovely." -Fandor
"Jocular art house fun with a serious message at its core." -The Hollywood Reporter
Winner Best Actor (Victor Ezenfis) and Best Script, Seville European Film Festival
