In this emotional 2001 documentary Sebastien Lifshitz (Come Undone) follows his friend Stephane Bouquet on a quest to find his father, an American serviceman stationed in France in the 1960s who transferred before learning that his lover was pregnant. Bouquet seems withdrawn, distrustful of people, and simply self-absorbed, but his willingness to let Lifshitz paint an unflattering portrait makes his search all the more moving. The director overdoes the shots of Bouquet looking out of windows, and sometimes he deliberately and needlessly misleads us to maintain the suspense. But it's hard to forget images like Bouquet's halting approach to a house where he thinks his father may be. 85 min.
