I'm Going Home

A Feature film by Manoel de Oliveira

Produced by Gemini Films

Release in France : 12/09/2001

    Synopsis

    Gilbert Valence is a stage actor.
    His talent and long career have earned him the greatest of roles. He’s presently performing the role of Béranger the First in “Exit the King” by Ionesco. One night, at the end of a performance, tragedy enters his life; his agent and old friend, Georges, informs him that his wife, daughter and son-in-law have been killed in a car accident.
    Time goes by, life gets back on track. Gilbert Valence now divides his time between his grandson, who he adores, and the theater, where he’s always in demand.
    He’s now performing the role of Prospero, Shakespeare’s hero in “The Tempest”.
    He’s taken up his former habits: the morning coffee and newspaper at the bar, rehearsals and performances. He even fascinates the young actress who’s at his side every night performing the role of Miranda. But he no longer has the courage to throw himself into adventure…
