35 Shots of Rum

35 Shots of Rum

Denis’ delicate and graceful film is an enchanting evocation of Ozu’s Late Spring. Lionel (Alex Descas), a widowed Parisian train-driver lives in peace and contentment with his “marriageable” daughter Josephine (Mati Diop), both resisting romantic involvement, even though they both know that Josephine will soon be moving on to live her own life. Agnès Godard’s cinematography is as beguiling and haunting as ever.
