THE HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES

director: Juliette Joffe, 2016 | Docu, Sony F3, 16:9

Anxious of not currently acting, an aging actor embarks on a seemingly aimless road trip. He confides in a young British hitchhiker who understands almost nothing of his French. Mixing documentary scenes, impressionistic monologues and absurdist dialogues the film focuses on a protagonist who only feels comfortable in fictional roles, struggling to live with himself and his past. Narrated with fleeting associations, the film takes us on an inner journey in which thought becomes landscape. The actor’s struggle reflects universal themes of striving to accept one’s history and longing to escape into endless journey to become someone else.
