Michel Franco is the Mexican director who made the savagely confrontational high-school bullying drama After Lucia; now, he comes to the Cannes competition with Chronic — a sombre, intelligent, finely composed study of one man’s emotional endgame. It is presented in an assemblage of scenes, shot from a coolly detached standpoint, at first without an obvious driving narrative. The subject of these scenes plays out in his life and career in ways which reveal him to be suffering the aftermath of some fatally devastating emotional blow.

Tim Roth in Cannes: 'It's crazy assisted suicide isn't legal'
Tim Roth takes the role of David, a homecare nurse for the terminally ill, and it is Roth’s best work for some time. Franco elicits from him a controlled and subtly detailed performance, doing a lot with less. It is clear from the outset that David is excellent at his job: conscientious, diplomatic, thorough, with the kind of compassion that is calmly and professionally focused on the patient, achieving a kind of intimacy that still has boundaries. Challengingly, one of the very first scenes shows David washing a young woman in a specially modified shower unit that allows her to be seated: the young woman is so sick, and all but silent and immobile, that it isn’t absolutely clear in one later stage whether he is attending to her dead body. What David goes through every day, for patients who are reaching the end, is a great burden he appears to bear lightly: and these scenes have something of a clinical-secular Pieta, or perhaps Gerasim and Ivan Ilych in Tolstoy.
But David goes too far. Without ever appearing to lose control, he becomes utterly devoted to each patient, with a quasi-Munchausen tendency to identify with them, subtly but relentlessly shutting the family out of the patient’s life – the family members who are at first only too happy to have someone take over, but realise only too late, in a numbed, stunned state, that they have been excluded from the patient’s thoughts, and somehow excluded from their own grief. And, as time goes on, David’s own behaviour becomes more questionable, although he never betrays what he is thinking or feeling.

The reason for David’s emotional disconnection is of course revealed to be something in his own family life, hints about which Franco disperses into the day-to-day scenes. There is nothing demonstrative or explanatory in the way these are filmed. David sits in his car; David gets out of his car; David talks to family members; David goes to the gym — where the nearest he ever comes to losing his temper is a testy exchange with the attendant about fresh towels — and David goes jogging. Interestingly, the movie is slightly less strong when he actually has significant contact with his family: what is implied and not said is fiercer and more disturbing than these more open and explicit moments, which are fractionally anti-climactic.

David has a kind of sociopathic condition whose ill effects are inevitably directed chiefly against himself – he is high-functioning, and never appears to unravel, but the film will climax in an event which the audience can see is semi-intentional, a gesture to which the whole drama has clearly been leading, and which makes an unbearably grim kind of sense in retrospect.

Tim Roth is excellent as David: impassive and enigmatic, withholding the truth about himself, but radiating in repose a sadness and a swallowed pain.
