Le Fils de Joseph

Eugène Green France, 2016

Jason's rating of the film The Son of Joseph

Already a huge fan of Eugène Green, especially THE PORTUGUESE NUN and LA SAPIENZA, I was nonetheless taken aback by the excellence of THE SON OF JOSEPH, a film engaged in something like free play within the allegorical register. We know of the flat Bressonian affect of Green's actors and his clinical form. The emotional impact of this film is transcendent precisely because it overwhelms the strictures of a method.
