The Son of Joseph

The Son of Joseph ★★★½

Archeology of emotions. Things that seen lost and remote that Green can just locate. A religious parable that risks choking on mannered beauty, as Green always do, so it can finally reach a place of satisfying freedom and acceptance. At best, when he allows some fear and pain to creep in to better open space for its sense of discovering. Filled with well-imagined detail and Green always finds a way to make his very specific direction of actors pay off in unexpected ways.
