Lulu Wang directs a cast of incredible performers led by a wonderful Awkwafina and the tender and friendly Zhao Shuzhen, the grandmother, a true force of nature that gives advice and love.
A film with a light and refined atmosphere, which in its fairy-tale colours manages to create a great family story that deals with complex themes with extreme elegance.
"The Farewell" is a mix of drama and irony that integrates the various parts of the story well. It moves between really strange and very funny moments and moments of extreme emotion.
Delicate, funny and touching: “The Farewell” is a story about death and life, the value of family and the cultural differences between East and West. Written and directed with extreme grace by Lulu Wang.
