Sally Potter, UK, USA, Sweden, 2020o

vBack

The film follows 24 hours in the life of father and daughter Leo and Molly as she grapples with the challenges of dealing with her father’s chaotic mental state. Their day together takes on an increasingly hallucinatory quality, as Leo seamlessly flows into and out of several parallel lives: a passionate marriage with his childhood sweetheart in Mexico, a struggling career as a drummer in Manhattan, and a life of solitude on a remote Greek island.

Schwierig. So muss man dieses Drama zusammenfassen. Die tolle Besetzung hilft auch nicht weiter: Xavier Bardem mimt einen unter einer Hirnatrophie leidenden Schriftsteller, Elle Fanning seine fürsorgliche Tochter. Die Geschichte taumelt orientierungslos zwischen Rückblenden und Gegenwart und verspielt auf Dauer die Vorfreude, die man auf das neue Werk von Sally Potter hatte.
