Albert Serra / FR, ES, DE, PT, 2022 / 165 min.
The latest film from provocateur Albert Serra is a fevered phantasmagoria set in French Polynesia. On Tahiti, diplomat De Roller – still charming but past his best – becomes embroiled in secret political intrigues and neo-colonial aspirations. Native activists resist.
He’s the High Commissioner for French Polynesia, likes to frequent the nightclubs of Tahiti and throws himself into a passionate affair with transgender receptionist Shannah. De Roller is a born smooth-talker who maintains good relations with everyone, while in his various roles – from cultural attaché to representative of French colonial power – winding people round his little finger.
