The ten last years of Albert Camus.

Recently I finished the reading of the biography "Albert Camus, une vie" of Oliver Todd (Gallimard 1996 Paris: 1054 pages in pocket size) and this this film has been based on this biography.Albert Camus (1913-1960) was philosopher,writer, novelist, dramatist and also journalist (he won the Nobel Prize of literature in 1957) and died in a tragic car accident at the age of 47 years.The film tells the ten last years of his life.Albert Camus was a very touching and controversial man as Olivier Todd wrote in his biography.The performance of Stéphane Freiss is very good.

Meaingful silences

This film grew on me; the acting is excellent throughout, and the most telling moments are when nothing is said, when the character recognizes the significance of the situation itself. AC's conflicts between the dual modes of Love, the one thru the love of a soul-mate, of one who touches her inner person; the other the sexual, natural one. And Ac's many conflicts over his relationships to the Native and the French Algierians, and to the Common and Educated (Bourgeois?) man, and how to reconcile them. A good introduction to the character.One negative - the subtitles still leave a lot to be desired, cutting awkwardly and not aligning with the English phrases. I had to pause and rewind many times.

Anouk Grinberg is outstanding as Madame Camus

The story of Camus is told from the point of view of the women who are most important to him: his mother, his wife and various lovers, especially actors and at the end of his life (he was 46) a young Danish student. I hope to rehabilitate him by reading another, more objective biography - or even better - many of his wonderful works. Myth of Sisyphos, La Peste, and many more.He was portrayed as a volatile genius, but not as a man who took responsibility for his nervous wife and children. And especially not as a philosopher.Outstanding anouk grinberg as Madame Camus.

Excellent job of the leading role!

Filme incrível para mim, que amo esse complexo escritor e ser humano... é claro que o filme n?o é uma biografia séria mas tem muitos dados acurados. Vale a pena! Incredible film for me, who love this complex writer and human being ... of course the film is not a serious biography but has a lot of accurate data. Worth it!#movieslover #amazonprimevideo #albertcamus
