Elisabeth Kubler-Ross describes five stages of dealing with the inevitability of death as follows: denial, anger; bargaining; despair, and finally acceptance. Whenever negotiating becomes clear will be ineffective, the phases move forward to approval. A character in the film “Swan Song Review” speculates that technological advancements may one day supply a person on the verge of death with something with which to bargain and for.

Antoine de Saint-Little Exupéry’s Prince describes love as discovering each other as being one of a kind in the cosmos, which leads to a romantic relationship. Being seen and embraced is only achievable via true love, and this is only possible if we are honest with ourselves about our own identities. However, in “Swan Song,” which is set a few years in the future, Cameron (Mahershala Ali) is presented with an existential dilemma that he cannot overcome.

If the perfect way for him to convey his love for his wife, Poppy (Naomie Harris), is predicated on lying about something so significant that he would never be able to feel unique again, what would he do? Because of its actors’ rich, committed performances and the careful consideration given to the issues it raises, “Swan Song” never comes off as cliched, even though it deals with issues of identity, integrity, and sorrow conventionally.

David Cameron has not communicated to his girlfriend Poppy that he suffers from a terminal illness. He has a chance to save Poppy and their son Cory (Dax Rey) from a devastating loss thanks to a new piece of technology, but it will only work if he keeps it a secret from everyone else in the world around him. A lab may create a new and healthy version of Cameron, dubbed Cameron 2.0, who can enter and take over the life of the sick Cameron, allowing him to die alone and quietly while his unhealthy counterpart suffers. If Cameron is in poor health, the lab may create a new and healthy version of him known as Cameron 3.0, who can come in and take over the life of the sick Cameron.

Swan Song Review

Flashbacks show Cameron and Poppy meeting for the first time on a train and their first few days together, which is a touching moment. The facts of his dilemma and the options he must make are presented in slow motion to the viewer. The present-day finds him getting messages from Dr. Scott (Glenn Close), who is pressing him to make a choice as soon as possible and telling him that if he tells Poppy the truth about his prognosis, he will lose his power to choose. To take advantage of everything Dr. Scott has to offer, Cameron must act quickly and ensure that his wife is entirely oblivious of what’s taking place.

This is the proposition: Dr. Scott can almost erase death by creating a new “you” that is indistinguishable from the version of you that even your closest family members perceive, enabling them to continue living their lives while you are gone. In the last phases of development, Cameron 2.0 (also known as Jack during the process) will completely take over Cameron’s consciousness, and all aware that he is not the original Cameron will be gone.

Therefore, Poppy and Cory, and Jack’s friends, family, and colleagues will think that Jack is the original Cameron, and the new Cameron will believe the same. There will be no one else who is aware of what has occurred except for the original Cameron, who will spend his last months in solitude and will never see his family again. What if Cameron chooses to forgo the comfort of his family during his final days to have the consolation of knowing that he is saving them from pain?

With the help of writer/director Benjamin Cleary, the stakes are elevated even higher, making the decision that much more difficult. A loss had already resulted in Poppy’s anguish, which Cameron had seen. On top of that, she is expecting her first kid. Since she is suffering from severe depression, he cannot bear the thought of abandoning her with two children and leaving her unable to care for them as a single mother.

In the meanwhile, he’ll have to deal with the fact that he’s deceiving her about something. Has whatever he takes away from her been more devastating than death because he leaves her with deception, which is the antithesis of intimacy? Is this more devastating than death because she is left with a lie, the antithesis of intimacy, a more considerable loss than death?

Because technology is so enmeshed with the characters’ lives in Cleary and production designer Annie Beauchamp’s world, it’s practically hard to imagine that it doesn’t exist there. Aside from being in a remote place with lots of room and surrounded by natural beauty, Dr. Scott’s facility is almost heaven-like in its design. Awkwafina portrays one of the patients who have to be seen. There is one other patient who needs to be seen as well. As he deliberates, Cameron visits her new replica to assess how well the operation is working for him. To distinguish between their original personas and their doppelgängers, both Ali and Awkwafina create doppelgängers that are distinct enough that we can tell the difference while also believing that no one they know will be able to tell the difference between the two of them.

What is a Swan Song?

On the other hand, Ali stands out for his depiction of a character (or rather two characters) who are quiet and reflective by nature. Awkwafina and Harris also shine and offer incredibly wise and intelligent performances. Through his writing, Swan Song Review conveys all of the contradictory emotions that both Camerons are experiencing as they attempt to make sense of their strange connection.

Swans, whose honks are not very melodic, are said to sing a single wonderful song just before they die, thus the moniker “Swan Song Review,” which comes from an ancient custom. It is used to describe an artist or athlete’s last appearance, something extraordinary and memorable when they make their final appearance, which is spectacular and essential. However, even as Cameron considers broadening his definition of himself to include something manufactured in a laboratory, the title refers to his decision as he approaches the conclusion of his life. He explores stretching his concept to encompass something developed in a laboratory even as the song isn’t very melodic or lyrical.
