September 21 is World Alzheimer's Day. IFFG reflects on social themes. That is why this Sunday Special is all about taking care of each other.
Anne is once again looking for a nurse for her demented father Anthony, who keeps turning down all help. She wants to make sure he's well taken care of when she's not around. For Anthony it is no longer clear what is real and what is going on in his head. His familiar surroundings are no longer so familiar.
The Father is a fascinating portrait of a man who is losing his grip on reality. The brilliant rendition of Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, The Two Popes) will never let you go. Olivia Colman (The Crown, The Favourite) as his daughter Anne, makes both her powerlessness and her love tangible.
