I'm Going Home

Hailed by critics as one of the finest films of the decade, acclaimed director Manoel de Oliveira's beautifully rendered film is a funny, humane and ultimately heartbreaking look at the life of aging Parisian actor Gilbert Valence (Piccoli). After learning that his family have been killed in an accident, his life begins to regain a semblance of normalcy as he cares for his orphaned grandson. But when an American director miscasts him in an adaptation of Joyce's 'Ulysses', he is forced to make an important decision. Irresistible in its poignancy and charm, this radiant wonder also stars John Malkovich and Catherine Deneuve. "Beautiful...A glorious film full of revelations" - Chicago Reader.
