I'm Going Home
Directed by Manoel de Oliveira
Gilbert Valence (Michel Piccoli) is a successful theater actor appearing in Eugene Ionesco's "Exit the King," when he learns that his wife, daughter and son-in-law have all been killed in a car accident. When an American film director (John Malkovich) offers him a role in an English-language production "Ulysses," the rigors of playing a younger man make Valence confront his grief and have him realize just how deep his pain lies. At the age of 93, legendary director Manoel de Oliveira has made his masterpiece in I'M GOING HOME, a warm and heartrending film with a remarkable and eloquent statement.
