Almayer's Folly
Celebrated filmmaker Chantal Akerman adapts Joseph Conrad's debut novel centering on the intense power struggle over a young woman who has little say regarding her own future. Persuaded by his employer Captain Lingard (Marc Barbé) to wed a Malaysian woman named Zahira, Almayer (Stanislas Merhar) complies, and together the couple has a daughter named Nina (Aurora Marion). Years later, Nina has blossomed into a young woman, and Lingard grows determined to have her educated in Europe. Meanwhile, as Lingard and Almayer engage in a bitter battle of wills over Nina's future, the sudden appearance of a young man named Daïn (Zac Andrianasolo) finds the situation turning critical. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
