About the Movie

The American-born expatriate filmmaker Eugène Green exists in his own special artistic orbit. His latest movie, The Son of Joseph, is perhaps his most buoyant. A nativity story reboot that gently skewers French cultural pretensions, it features newcomer Victor Ezenfis as a discontented Parisian teenager in search of a father with Mathieu Amalric and Fabrizio Rongione as his, respectively, callous and gentle alternative paternal options, and Natacha Régnier as his single mother.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "The Son of Joseph" can be trying in its whimsy, yet it builds to a lovely finale that evokes the Bible, the French Resistance and the surreal. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Jan 12, 2017

Fresh: No one behaves quite like a human being in Eugene Green's Le Fils de Joseph, yet a soulful sense of humanity emerges from their heightened declamations anyway. – Guy Lodge, Variety, Oct 11, 2016

Fresh: If "The Son of Joseph" believes fervently in the restorative properties of painting, music and architecture, it is no less sincere in its affirmation of the redemptive power of human relationships. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Mar 16, 2017

Fresh: The Son of Joseph might be filled with talk about and visual allusions to God, Biblical art, life, parenthood, filialness and relationships, but the way the material is handled is jocular without betraying the more serious ideas at its core. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 11, 2016
