Daddy Nostalgia

Daddy Nostalgia (1990) – (Daddy Nostalgie)

Director: Bertrand Tavernier
Screenplay: Colo Tavernier (based on his own original story)
Role: Daddy

Dirk plays a retired salesman with a serious heart condition and an arid marriage to his French wife (Odette Laure). In a last attempt at self-affirmation, he reaches out to his young daughter Caroline (Jane Birkin). Bertrand Tavernier’s film gave Dirk the opportunity to prove in his last performance on screen that he could still deliver one of the subtly nuanced performances for which he was famed. The perfect swansong.
