Olivia Colman on working with Florian Zeller

Although Florian has a background in theatre and shorts, The Father serves as his directorial feature debut.

However, Olivia described while in conversation with Screen Daily just how experienced he came across:

“We kept forgetting it was his first film, because he was better than many directors after their tenth. I think because he really understands actors. So he lets you play, he trusts you. And he had a brilliant relationship with his crew. Because he’s so gentle and eloquent and knows what he’s doing, everybody listens.”

She added: “And he had a lovely eye. He’s very, very visual.”
