Elegant and urbane, Tony (Dirk Bogarde in a feisty, charismatic performance) hasn’t been the best father to his spirited screenwriter daughter (Birkin). But now he is dying and, together again in a villa on the sunny Côte d’Azur, the two reconnect, discovering that they need each other now more than ever. As he regales her with recollections of his past, she drinks in his worldly joie de vivre, all the time aware that their days together are precious. Driven by the touching rapport between Birkin and Bogarde, this golden-hued mood piece is uncommonly graceful and wise in the way it illuminates the universal experience of letting go.
