In this oh-so-French psychodrama, a successful, middle-aged gerontologist in the wealthy suburb of Versailles realizes that his happy life is a carefully constructed facade when his long lost father arrives, seemingly out of nowhere. Daddy apparently abandoned his wife and two young boys decades ago and ran off to Africa to become a rural physician. Charming, detatched and honest to a fault, dad’s glad to point out the flaws in his son’s chosen lifestyle (including a mistress and a clientele of vain rich folk). Director Anne Fontaine ( Dry Cleaning ) pulls some tricky slight-of-hand, making the whole thing darker and more mysterious than the average family drama. In French with English subtitles.

It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but this story of a Honduran teenager who reunites with her father to undertake a hellish journey across the U.S./Mexico border gives us enough patent detail of character to generate a good deal of sympathy. Along the way, our gal crosses paths with a young gang member intent on robbing immigrants, causing them both to spin off in a whole new direction. HD available.
