Loose Cannons review

9 December 2010 9:40 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

While his last few films may have failed to make any headway with discerning film fans, it seems Ferzan Ozpetek’s latest effort is set to reward faithful audiences the world over.

Set in the Puglia region of Italy’s deep south, the Turkish-Italian director’s Loose Cannons is a light-hearted but considerate outing filled with unabashed passion and affection for its characters and story. Touching on themes of family, love, sexual identity, prejudice and bigotry, Ozpetek’s latest fare is both heartfelt and heart-warming, dipping a comedic toe into the oft-told tale of a young man coming to terms with who he really is.

Tommaso (Roccardo Scamarcio) is the youngest child in the large and very eccentric Cantone family. His mother Stefania (Lunetta Savino), is loving and caring, but trapped by bourgeois conventions; while his father, Vincenzo (Ennio Fantastichini), has dangerously high expectations of his children and is just »

Trailer: Loose Cannons

16 October 2010 7:35 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies trailer for Loose Cannons, directed by Ferzan Ozpetek and starring Riccardo Scamarcio, Nicole Grimaudo, Alessandro Preziosi, Ennio Fantastichini, Lunetta Savino, Ilaria Occhini, Elena Sofia Ricci, Bianca Nappi, Massimiliano Gallo, Paola Minaccioni and Crescenza Guarnieri. Celebrated award-winning director Ferzan Özpetek’s outrageous family comedy lifts the lid on a multi-generational household coming to terms with a rapidly modernising world, and the broadening social acceptance that comes with it. No other nationality respects their food and family gatherings with the fervour and zest of the Italians, but when it comes to the Cantone family, some things are better left well away from the dinner table and in the closet! »
