Once upon a time, during WWII, somewhere in Nazi occupied Romania, a night of comic misadventures ensues when a boy discovers a dead soldier. The German authorities demand that the perpetrator must be identified or the town leaders will be shot the following morning. In their desperation, led by Father Johanis (Harvey Keitel), their salvation seems to lie in convincing the town "fool", Ipu (Gérard Depardieu), to agree to confess, and save them all with his sacrifice. The comedy and darker sides of human nature race toward the deadline where one cannot help but wonder who, in fact, is the actual "fool"? (c) Monterey Media … More

Critic Reviews for A Farewell to Fools
An extremely low-boil wartime farce, content to wring quiet smiles and silent laughs, that more or less works as a sort of lightly affected, darkly comedic parable.
Despite the presence of Depardieu and Keitel, not nearly foolish enough.
That loneliest of creatures: the comedy that inspires almost no laughs.
Call it a dark farce, human comedy or wartime satire. But however you slice it, the ill-conceived morality tale "A Farewell to Fools" is a bust.
