LONGING 2

“Longing” is a remake of a 2017 Israeli film, with original writer/director Savi Gabizon returning to oversee its English-language refreshing. It’s been turned into a vehicle for actor Richard Gere, who’s a natural fit for a story following a cold, distant businessman learning of a son he never knew and already lost, inspired to track the young man’s footsteps and understand an existence he wasn’t part of. The part plays directly to Gere’s strengths as an actor, and initial expectations for a more mournful journey are nicely disrupted by the helmer, who attempts to manufacture a darker tale of fixation. “Longing” doesn’t always connect as intended, especially in the third act, but Gabizon launches an interesting mystery of behavior with the tale, adding a few turns along the way to keep the viewing experience involving and enjoyably weird before the whole thing sobers up in the end.
