Description

The Best Film of 2022 for Cahiers du Cinéma, a dreamy tropical visually-stunning cinematic journey deserved to be experienced in a cinema theatre.

Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra reconfirms his centrality in the contemporary cinematic landscape with this mesmerising portrait of a French bureaucrat (a monumental Benoît Magimel) who embodies the greed, hypocrisy and paranoia of colonial power.

Shooting in widescreen, Pacifiction conveys the lushness and languor of sunsets in French Polynesia. From the menace of a darkened nightclub to the of the vastness of the Pacific waters, he conjures a milieu that is equally intoxicating and mysterious, including what arguably is one of the most incredible scenes of modern cinema capturing a group of boats, jet skies and surfers  out at sea taking on staggeringly 20 meters high waves.
