Trailers For The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser, Starring Vincent Gallo

17 July 2013 9:05 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Davide Manuli’s new take on the historical Kaspar Hauser story previously adapted by Werner Herzog (The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser) features Vincent Gallo as both an English-speaking The Sheriff and an Italian-speaking bell-bottomed The Pusher. I’m a huge fan of Herzog’s film, but Manuli’s second film The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser (La leggenda di Kaspar Hauser), weird as hell, is a quirky Techno Western depicting surreal humor from obscure scenes. The mysterious titular character is played by a flat-chested stage actress Silvia Calderoni, while Claudia Gerini stars as The Duchess, Fabrizio Gifuni as The Priest, and Elisa Sednaoui as The Psychic. Gallo delivers a solid performance,...

Watch: 2 Bonkers Trailers & New Pics For 'The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser' Starring Vincent Gallo

16 July 2013 1:09 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What's better than one Vincent Gallo? Apparently, two Vincent Gallos. Yep, fans of the mercurial, eccentric actor can start getting prepared for a double dose of the actor in the upcoming "The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser," which is as appropriately zany as you might expect a movie starring Gallo can be. Dude just doesn't do normal. Directed by Davide Manuli, the film is some kind of modern western riff on the strange but true story about the titular man who showed up randomly in Nuremberg in the early 1800s, saying he had been raised and educated in a dungeon, but never saw the outside world. Stage actress Silvia Calderoni takes the role of Kaspar, with Gallo as The Sheriff (speaking English) and The Pusher (speaking Italian), Claudia Gerini as the Duchess, Fabrizio Gifuni as the Priest, and Elisa Sednaoui as the Psychic. The result? Well, two new trailers that reveal »

Abel Ferrara to Appear in Silent Italian Film From 'The Legend of Kaspar Hauser' Director Davide Manuli

24 January 2013 2:34 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What is “4:44 Last Day on Earth” writer-director Abel Ferrara doing in a silent Italian film? Only filmmaker Davide Manuli can say for sure. “It’s a gamble, an experiment,” Manuli told Indiewire recently about his new project, “Haiku,” which is currently being crowdfunded on Indiegogo. “After ‘[The Legend of] Kaspar Hauser’ I was so tired that I couldn’t really sit down and write a conventional, dialogue-based screenplay. I have already worked with Abel as an assistant, but I believe that he is also a great actor and I have always wanted to work with him.” As funding opportunities shrink by the day in a Europe ravaged by the financial crisis, austerity threatens to become a new aesthetic movement as well as the ruling economic imperative. Perhaps this is just the environment in which Manuli should thrive. A creative anomaly, a beacon of visual insolvency in a sea of aesthetic compliance, »
