The Father (12A)
Anthony Hopkins’ unflinching, Oscar-winning performance as a man in the grips of dementia powers this film. Anthony is 81 years old, lives alone in his flat and refuses all the nurses his daughter Anne tries to impose upon him. But the necessity of organising care is becoming more and more pressing, as she’s decided to move to Paris with a man she’s just met. If that’s the case, though, who’s the stranger in Anthony’s living room, claiming he’s been married to Anne for years? Why does he say that this is the supposed married couple’s home, and not his? There is something going on; the world is no longer logical – are they trying to make him seem crazy? Are they trying to rob him of his flat?
Zeller’s brutal, fractured film explores the agonising trajectory of dementia from the sufferer’s point of view, as reality becomes something that can’t be trusted.
