Mexico City- In the father, nominated for six Oscar films, Anthony Hopkins plays an old man who changes from sad to euphoric, from grumpy and charming: his dementia is in progress.
Anthony is called a character, and because of his lack of confidence in the chronological order of memory and the fact that he thinks is irrefutable, he has fallen into an abyss of confusion and depression.
“It moved me very much, and I did it very happily. This is the best thing I have done in my career. I can say that I am very interesting about building roles.
The 83-year-old actor said at the Toronto International Film Festival: “I am fascinated. I am at the age of spreading melancholy. I understand and feel it.”

The father made his debut at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture, actor (Hopkins), supporting actress (Olivia Coleman), adapted screenplay (Zeller and Christopher Hamp) Pause), editing and production design nomination.
Zeller said: “My personal experience with my grandmother made me reflect on dementia and the diseases it causes, not only clinically, but also emotionally.”
“Now it’s my turn to do a part that will let you understand his disease viewpoint from the outside. I am a daughter who wants to understand, but he must decide between continuing her life and providing him with decent treatment. Ordinary experts. Many people questioned,” Coleman added.
The story begins with a meeting between Anthony and his daughter Anne, who tried to understand the inconvenience of his watcher, which was caused by a missing watch.
Anthony revealed that he planned to move to Paris with her new boyfriend because her daughter was married to James, which surprised her.

“I don’t think I need to take action, just to understand who Anthony is. At some point, during the shooting, they will tell me to eat chicken. If they do, I don’t know what happened. I’m joking, I have to tell them if this is part of the script.
Hopkins said: “Anyway! It’s great to work with such an excellent actor, such an excellent director and writer.”
