La folie Almayer / Almayer's Folly (2011) DVD9
The film traces the decline of Almayer, a young Dutchman who has gone to Malaysia in search of pirate treasure. Hired by the pirate king, he marries his daughter, but despite his luck, he doesn’t abandon his goal which soon turns into a destructive dream.
The film is set in a Malaysia under foreign occupation, where revolt is brewing as it is pretty much everywhere, in a small remote village, far from everything and seemingly removed from the great events of history. It is also set on a wide and turbulent river which will play an important role in a story that blends passion and dreams, racism and money, desire for independence and cowardice, but is above all about a father’s love for his daughter.
This mad and boundless love will lead Almayer to his definitive downfall. He will end up a king of tragedy, mad and almost blind beneath the unrelenting sun.
