The Farewell

The Farewell the American director Lulu Wang, born in Beijing, had tried the technique of the white lie in her previous The Farewell film (Posthumous), but in The Farewell she refines the script and the comic register. Billi (Awkwafina) travels to China to visit her cancer-stricken grandmother, with the excuse of a fake wedding and under one condition: to hide her own health from the old woman.

The premise, a priori light, reflects the cultural contrast between East and West, but above all it serves as a pretext to portray the generational conflict: the feeling of being rooted (or the absence of it), family dynamics, emotional taboo, pressure social or fear of failure. Thus, a not sad intimacy is achieved where we perceive that volatile happiness typical of the characters of Ozu, Kurosawa or Kore-eda; but the vertigo of current modernity and the determination to break with conventions, very present in indie authors such as Sachs or Kogonada, are also palpable. A bitter comedy that can be extrapolated to any family today and 50 years ago.
