The Father (2020)

Having just scared off his recent caregiver, Anthony, an ailing,  octogenarian Londoner gradually succumbing to dementia, feels abandoned  when concerned Anne, his daughter, tells him she's moving to Paris.  Confused and upset, against the backdrop of a warped perspective and his  rapid, heart-rending mental decline, Anthony is starting to lose his  grip on reality, struggling to navigate the opaque landscape of present  and past. Now, as faded memories and glimpses of lucidity trigger sudden  mood swings, dear ones, Anthony's surroundings, and even time itself  become distorted. Why has his younger daughter stopped visiting? Who are  the strangers that burst in on Anthony?
