‘They Call Me Jeeg’ Dominates Italy’s David di Donatello Awards

18 April 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Offbeat superhero movie “They Call Me Jeeg,” a fresh riff on formulaic Hollywood franchises and on a 1970 Japanese cartoon series, was the big winner at Italy’s 60th David di Donatello Awards, the country’s top film nods, scooping seven statuettes including for best debut director, producer, actress, actor, and supporting female and male thesps.

The best picture prize went to Paolo Genovese’s high-concept dramedy “Perfect Strangers.” “Strangers,” which is about a dangerous game played with cell phones, is the only Italian film unspooling at the Tribeca Film Festival. “Strangers,” which has done boffo biz locally, also took the best screenplay nod.

Matteo Garrone won the best director nod for the English-language horror/fantasy “Tale of Tales,” which also won in the cinematography, production design, costume design, makeup and hair categories.

“I’m lucky that Jeeg was not eligible for best director,” Garrone quipped as soon as he got on stage. »
