"Visually, I'm Going Home is an ode to Paris and to life."ÛStephen Holden, New York Times

I'm Going Home is one of the loveliest works from 93-year-old Portuguese master Manoel de Oliveira (the only silent-era director still working.)

I'm Going Home is a portrait of a legendary theater actor (Michel Piccoli) who's called off-stage after performing Ionesco's Exit the King only to be told that his wife, daughter, and son-in-law have all been killed in a car accidentÛand also that he's now the guardian of his young grandson.

Set in Paris around New Year's Eve in 2000, it's a wry and often touching look at mourning, the mysteries of aging, and the artistic life. John Malkovich contributes an offbeat cameo as an American director trying to cast a film version of Joyce's Ulysses. (2001; 90 mins.)
