Dark Swedish comedy on inheritance and growing old
We invite you to the very last Nordic Fim Thursday this year.
Richard Hobert’s A One-way to Antibes is a dark and dramatic comedy about a widower called George who unexpectedly gets to know that his own children are plotting to sell his house, and gets ready for a counter strike. Although frail of heart and dim of eyesight, his mind is fine – so George easily outwits his offspring, leaving them behind to embark upon a personal journey, with many unexpected twists and turns. Although the film is lively and humorous, death is also a constant companion, in the form of three ghostly apparitions from his past. They seem to have come to claim him, possibly as punishment for the moments of great failure of his life.
