Review: This Must Be The Place Mixes Comedy, Absurdity, and Human Drama

For some people, This Must Be The Place will be the new Sean Penn flick, for others it will be the new Paolo Sorrentino film. The difference may seem futile, but based on this simple distinction you might say that roughly one group is going to appreciate the film for what it is, while the other group will end up being bored to death. I'm in the believers group and thoroughly enjoyed Sorrentino's latest effort, but it's definitely not a film for everyone. Ever since I discovered Sorrentino's Le Conseguenze dell'Amore, I've been following the man with heightened enthusiasm.

ROME -- Paolo Sorrentino's controversial film about famed Italian political powerbroker Giulio Andreotti will start filming next month, with or without the help of the seven-time prime minister.

Sorrentino -- a two-time Palme d'Or nominee at Cannes -- announced the plans for the highly anticipated film last month, claiming that the 88-year-old Andreotti gave the project his blessing. But Andreotti responded a day later saying he had never met Sorrentino and that he hoped the film would never be made.

But producers indicated Monday that it will indeed be made, with a €4.2 million ($5.7 million) budget split between four production houses: Italian producers Indigo Film, Lucky Red and Parco Film along with French company Babe Films. Filming is set to begin in June.

Toni Servillo, who won a David di Donatello Award for best actor for Sorrentino's 2004 film Conseguenze dell'Amore (Consequences of Love), will play Andreotti in the film.

When contacted, Sorrentino would not say if Andreotti had finally decided to give his blessing to the project.

Donatellos have 'Heart,' 'Love'

CANNES -- Giovanni Veronesi and Ferzan Ozpetek led the way with 12 David di Donatello nominations each for their respective films Manuale D'Amore (Manual of Love) and Cuore Sacro (Sacred Heart), Italy's equivalent to the Oscars. Both films were nominated in the best film category. Paolo Sorrentino's Le Consequenze dell'amore (The Consequences of Love) and Gianni Amelio's Le Chiavi di Casa (The House Keys) received 10 and seven award nominations respectively including best film and director nominations. Rounding out the best film category was Certi Bambini (Certain Kids), which was directed by Andrea and Antonio Frazzi. Both Ozpetek and the Frazzi brothers were nominated for best director as was Davide Ferrario for Dopo Mezzanotte (After Midnight), which received ten nominations.

Aurelio De Laurentiis was awarded the best producer award for his work on Che ne sara di noi (What Will Happen to Us) and Tutto in quella notte (All in a Night).
