France, 2021, 68'
By Louis Garrel
Garrel's environmental comedy is critical of the modern lifestyle of privileged Westerners: a couple’s everyday existence is thrown into turmoil when they discover that their thirteen-year-old son, Joseph, has secretly sold valuables from the family home, designer clothes, jewellery and the contents of their wine cellar, to finance a mysterious ecological project. He has joined an international youth ‘brigade’ that wants – in the manner of Greta Thunberg – to save the planet and supply Central Africa with drinking water!
I think the film is a bit of a juggernaut, there is a comedy, a mini adventure film, a small marital crisis, the idea that a woman begins to admire her child more than the father of her child, there is a moral tale, an ecological fable, and a background of optimism.
Cast Laetitia Casta, Louis Garrel, Joseph Engel
