Nyff: Garrel's Jealousy Is Like a Good Haiku

30 September 2013 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Among moviegoers who try to keep up with French cinema, the more recent pictures made by post-New Wave avant garde-type Philippe Garrel tend to inspire either passionate defenses or impatient eye-rolling, with not much in between. Perhaps the biggest lightning rod is Garrel's frequent casting of his son, Louis Garrel, an actor with a magnificently floppy tousle of hair and a sullen pout worthy of a disgruntled Roman god. Louis starred in his father's 2005 romantic drama Regular Lovers, playing a super-serious poet swept into the life-changing current of May '68, an echo of a role he'd played a few years earlier in Bernardo Bertolucci's sensual and sorely underrated romance The Dreamers. Louis is good at playing disaffected youths, but a little goes a long way, and his fath »

Venice: Variety’s Pre-festival Party Honors Helmer Bernardo Bertolucci

28 August 2013 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Starwood and Variety held their fifth annual pre-opening-day party on the rooftop terrace of the historic Hotel Danieli in Venice, where the theme this year was La Notte Dei Dreamers (Night of the Dreamers) in honor of Bernardo Bertolucci, jury president of the fest’s 70th edition.

Bertolucci, whose “The Dreamers” launched from the Lido in 2003, praised the highly creative party menu conceived by Starwood Venezia g.m. Antonello De’ Medici and his team, consisting of dishes dedicated, and inspired by, some of his films.

“It had never happened to me before to have my movies — their titles, their concepts — transformed into delicious different interpretations done by chefs,” he said.

“I ate of bit of ‘The Sheltering Sky,’ a bit of ‘The Last Emperor’ and I finished with ‘Last Tango in Paris,’ which was a mix of French and Argentine cuisine,” Bertolucci, in fine fetter, recounted.

What do we know about Sam Mendes' Penny Dreadful?

27 August 2013 1:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Sarah Dobbs 28 Aug 2013 - 07:00

Sarah tots up what we know so far about Sam Mendes' 'psychosexual horror' series, Penny Dreadful, with Josh Hartnett and Eva Green...

Picking a derogatory term for the title of your newest project seems a bit odd, but apparently Sam Mendes isn’t bothered. The Skyfall director is currently producing a new TV series for Showtime: based on various Victorian gothic horror stories, it’s called Penny Dreadful, after the cheap serialised thrillers of the nineteenth century. It’s set to start filming in October, so it won’t be on our screens for a little while yet, but here’s everything we know about it so far…

It’s been written by John Logan

Former playwright John Logan wrote all eight episodes of the show. He’s best known right now for writing the script for Skyfall – and he’s also down »

Even Bernardo Bertolucci Thinks American TV Is Better Than American Movies These Days

29 May 2013 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Legendary filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci was recently honored by the American Academy in Rome with the McKim Award. The man behind films such as “Last Tango in Paris,” “The Last Emperor,” and “The Dreamers” has been active in the film industry for over 50 years now and after receiving the prestigious award, spoke of his love for American culture from when he was very young as well as the disappointment he feels regarding the state of Hollywood today. It’s a sentiment that’s been echoed quite often by other filmmakers lately, but perhaps more amusing to learn is Bertolucci’s penchant for recent American television."My generation had an affair with American culture, there's no doubt about it. A street lamp and a fire hydrant made me sing in the rain,” said Bertolucci in an interview. "But the American films I like now do not come from Hollywood studios but from television series, »

Something in the Air – review

Olivier Assayas looks back at the days following the events of May 1968 – and at his own youth – with a delicate wit

Link to video: Something in the Air: watch trailer here

The son of a movie director and now in his 50s, Olivier Assayas has built up an interestingly varied body of work as a critic for Cahiers du cinéma, authored several books including a monograph on Ingmar Bergman, and directed over the past 20 years a succession of modest, intelligent films. Most are concerned with moral problems and social responsibility in a middle-class setting like his Les Destinées sentimentales about a rebellious young man reluctantly taking over the family's prestigious porcelain factory in the 1920s, and Summer Hours, the tale of siblings and their elderly mother gathering to settle the estate of a recently deceased painter. Slightly different are Irma Vep, a cinéaste's celebration of Hong Kong movies and »

Something in the Air (Après Mai) – review

23 May 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Olivier Assayas seems to be dramatising his own youth with this beautiful-looking account of the soixante-huitard aftermath – but politics give way too easily to nostalgia

In contemporary French and European cinema, the events of May 1968 live stubbornly on – intensely debated and treasured and re-mythologised. A whiff of tear gas is a madeleine. For wasn't it cinema itself, and the attempted sacking of the Cinématheque Française chief Henri Langlois, that helped spark the Paris uprising? Philippe Garrel's Les Amants Réguliers, or Regular Lovers (2005), showed a young poet, played by the director's son Louis, taking to the barricades in 1968. Louis Garrel played something similar in Bernardo Bertolucci's soixante-huitard swoon, The Dreamers (2003). Before that, Louis Malle's Milou En Mai, or May Fools (1990) starred Michel Piccoli as the provincial Milou, whose family estate in May 1968 is on the verge of being dismembered by history itself.

Bernardo Bertolucci to head Venice Jury

9 May 2013 5:02 AM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

Bernardo Bertolucci will preside over the International Jury for the Competition of the 70th Venice International Film Festival (28 August – 7 September 2013), which will award the Golden Lion and other official prizes.

“Very few directors can claim a lifetime experience so passionately committed to contemporary cinema like Bertolucci’s. His work has explored with insatiable curiosity the world around us and the ever evolving language of film, discovering and bringing to our attention what’s most vital and beautiful. Such commitment to “the present” is one of the finest services that cinema can render to itself and is one of the many reasons why Bertolucci is the ideal Jury President” stated the Director of the Venice Film Festival Alberto Barbera.

“I cheerfully accept to chair the jury of the 70th Venice International Film Festival,” stated Bernardo Bertolucci . “This is my second time. In 1983 the Venice Film Festival was celebrating its 40th edition. »

Me and You – review

20 April 2013 4:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bernardo Bertolucci's first offering in a decade is a lightweight, disappointing affair

Between 1962, when he made his feature debut with The Grim Reaper, a Rashomon-style thriller scripted by Pasolini, up to 1990, when he directed an underrated adaptation of Paul Bowles's The Sheltering Sky, Bertolucci was responsible for some of the finest films of our time. The greatest perhaps was The Conformist, which brought together Marx and Freud in provocative and persuasive ways. Since then, however, his films have been woolly and lightweight, and Me and You, his first picture since illness confined him to a wheelchair 10 years ago, is equally disappointing.

His last movie, The Dreamers of 2003, was a reworking of Cocteau's Les enfants terribles in 1960s Paris. Me and You continues this hermetic, semi-incestuous theme with the 14-year-old Lorenzo living a clandestine life with his drug-addicted, 25-year-old half-sister, Olivia, in the basement of the Rome flat of his divorced mother. »

Me and You – review

18 April 2013 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Based on a youth novel by Niccolò Ammaniti, Me and You has warmth and a tell-tale Bertolucci touch, but it's not among his greatest films

There's intimacy and immediacy in this movie from the 73-year-old Bernardo Bertolucci: it's an engaging, if slight, two-hander about a troubled teenage boy, Lorenzo (Jacopo Olmo Antinori) who tells his mother he's going on a school skiing trip but instead hides out in the unused, crummy basement flat under the family home – and finds he has to share it with his older half-sister, Olivia (Tea Falco), who is also using it as somewhere to come off heroin. A difficult relationship blooms.

Me and You was based on a young-adult novel by Niccolò Ammaniti, published in 2010, but it could have been made at any time in the last 40 years, especially when Lorenzo and Olivia start singing along to David Bowie's rewritten Italian version of Space Oddity. »

19th Bradford International Film Festival - Me and You (2012)

14 April 2013 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Me and You (Italian: Io e te), 2012.

Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci.

Starring Tea Falco, Jacopo Olmo Antinori, Sonia Bergamasco, Veronica Lazar, Tommaso Ragno, Pippo Delbono.

Synopsis:

An an introverted teenager tells his parents he going on a ski trip, but instead spends his time alone in a basement.

Sentimental and occasionally even soppy, unambitious in terms of both scale and theme, always softcore rather than explicit, Me and You is the surprising new picture from Bernardo Bertolucci. After a break of nine years, the director of The Last Emperor and Novecento has confined himself within his smallest space yet: an apartment building’s basement. Arguably, it focuses his directorial efforts, even if the story the film’s built around is so very basic.

What will be immediately noticeable in Me and You is Bertolucci’s diminishing interest in carnal desires. There’s a hint of confusing sexual tension between Lorenzo and Olivia, »

Bernardo Bertolucci: believe it's butter

31 January 2013 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Italian director opens up about Berlusconi, what really happened on the set of Last Tango in Paris and how he feared he would never work in cinema again

Bernardo Bertolucci's electric wheelchair barely scrapes through the door frame of the Rotterdam office where he is giving interviews. The 72-year-old director of Last Tango In Paris, The Last Emperor, The Conformist and new feature Me and You seems disconcerted when photographers ask him to steer across the room, but he covers the floor with grace and good humour.

He still cuts a dapper figure in felt hat, scarf and neat suit. It's only noon but he asks his Dutch distributor to fetch him some gin. The Rotterdam film festival staff aren't accustomed to hosting such celebrated film-makers, and dote on him. He's enjoying it.

His new feature, Me and You is lithely shot, with a youthful energy. Adapted from a novel by Niccolò Ammaniti, »

Eva Green is A Dame to Kill For

30 January 2013 2:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just last week, we reported the news that Bruce Willis would be returning to Sin City in Robert Rodriguez's long-awaited sequel, A Dame To Kill For. Now Rodriguez and co-director and creator Frank Miller have found said Dame, with the announcement the Vesper Lynd herself, Eva Green, has been cast as the sequels titular character Ava Lord.

Said Rodriguez and Miller on the announcement: "We've been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us."

Described as "every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she's also every man's darkest nightmares." Green is certainly fits the bill, »

Eva Green Latest Looker to Join 'Sin City' Sequel

29 January 2013 3:42 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

We approve of this casting. Boy howdy, do we.

It's been swell and all hearing that Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and even Bruce Willis will be back for the "Sin City" sequel, and it's been nice to hear about new cast members like Josh Brolin, Jamie Chung and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But none of that makes for the casting news we've really been waiting for.

Now we have it. Eva Green, the impossible gorgeous Bond Girl of "Casino Royale" and the oft-naked cinephile of "The Dreamers," has been cast in the title role of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," according to Variety.

Green will be playing Ava Lord, a woman shaped by "every man's most glorious dreams come true and every man's darkest nightmares," according to Miller himself. She makes men do stupid, stupid things (especially Josh Brolin's Dwight, a man who really should've used his brain instead »
