2022, Albert Serra, In French with English Subtitles, 165 mins

On the French Polynesian island of Tahiti, the High Commissioner of the Republic and French government official De Roller (Benoît Magimel) is a calculating man with flawless manners. His somewhat broad perception of his role brings him to navigate the high end ’establishment’ as well as shady venues where he mingles with the locals. Especially since a persistent rumor has been going around: the sighting of a submarine whose ghostly presence could herald the return of French nuclear testing.

“One of the most beautiful and rigorously introspective movies of this or any year, a film that makes you deeply ponder the fate of humanity itself.”— IndieWire

“A film unlike any other this year. Serra’s vision ultimately is as beguiling as it is boundless, and strangely romantic.” – The Film Stage

Official Selection: Cannes Film Festival, NY Film Festival, TIFF

Named Best Film of the Year- Cahiers Du Cinema
