by Michel Franco New World View: Mexico

David carries out his job meticulously and with passion. As a nurse, he accompanies those who find themselves in the last phase of their life. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, he develops strong and even intimate relationships with each person he cares for. But outside of his work David is ineffectual, awkward, and reserved. It is clear that he needs each patient as much as they need him.
In his first English language film, Michel Franco impressively unveils the complex layers of David’s psyche. The film won the award for best screenplay at Cannes with Tim Roth displaying his exceptional talent in the leading role.
