The high-profile movie “The Father” produced by Sony Pictures will be screened on a special line in Mainland China on the eve of Father’s Day on June 18. The pre-sale is now open.
The film is starring Oscar Best Actor Anthony Hopkins and Oscar Best Actress Olivia Coleman, and the two play the role of father and daughter in the film.
Recently, the film crew released a set of precious studio photos.
“The Father” focuses on patients with Alzheimer’s disease and their families, using fragmented sensory narrative techniques to visually show the confused time and space plight of the sick elderly.
The film’s unique shooting technique allows the audience to follow Anthony to experience the daily life of the sick elderly from the first perspective.
As director Florian Zeller said: “This story is like a maze, and the audience is in the maze and must find a way out.”
The film shows the life issues of aging and forgetting and the inseparable connection of family affection.
The director described the aging and forgetting that everyone will encounter in a gentle and sharp way.
This is an extremely long and arduous journey, and the only thing that can be saved is family affection and love.
Many media and film critics believe that “The Father” is the best film in recent years that describes the physical and psychological plight of the elderly with Alzheimer’s disease.
