Following the exquisite heartbreak of call me by your namehis Oscar-winning portrayal of a young queer love found and then lost, director Luca Guadagnino has swung a surprising genre towards horror for his next film, Suspiria. But a sequel as unexpected as a Dario Argento remake Giallo classic might have seemed on paper, Guadagnino’s sincerity and depth of feeling made the film itself both an unmistakable expression of his authorial voice and the rare remake to refreshingly assert its own unique identity.

With bones and allGuadagnino makes his second foray into horror, finding Suspiria screenwriter David Kajganich for an adaptation of Camille DeAngelis’ young adult novel that feels both more macabre and more distinctly heartfelt than the couple’s first stab in the genre. There is no individual sequence in bones and all as nightmarish as the one at the start Suspiria when Dakota Johnson’s dance has a menacing intruder’s body contort into a helpless, broken pretzel, but the amount of torn flesh and bloody jowls on display makes it a graphically more violent film than its predecessor. At the same time, however, what lingers the most is the haunting sense of loneliness and isolation that plagues its two cannibalistic teenage protagonists, who find a much-needed connection with each other to compensate for their estrangement from normal society of 80s-era, small town America.

The term “cannibal” isn’t entirely correct, however – in the language of the film itself, characters who suffer from a genetically inherited disorder that requires them to feast on other humans in order to survive are simply referred to as “eaters”. “. At the start of the story, high school girl Maren (Taylor Russell) is unaware that she is a eater, confident that her strict father (Andre Holland) has his reasons for moving them both frequently from town to town and to keep her away from any social activity with her peers.

But one evening, as she sneaks out of her bedroom window to hang out with some classmates, she is surprised to find herself so overwhelmed by this hunger that she begins to compulsively feed on a friend before rush into a confused panic. Her father, after years of preparing for this exact moment, quickly moves them to another city and soon after abandons her without notice, leaving behind a wad of cash and an audio tape he recorded. to fill her in on the details and history of her. irresistibly murderous condition.

Learning that the eater gene was passed down from a mother (Chloë Sevigny) she knows nothing else about, Maren sets off on a journey alone across the vast Midwest to find her. A creepy old eater named Sully (Mark Rylance) finds her at a bus stop – experienced eaters have the ability to detect themselves by scent – and shows her the ropes of the drifting, house-invading eater lifestyle. which he supports. Once she escapes his grip, she meets a confident punk rock-style eater her own age, Lee (Timothée Chalamet), who ends up joining her on her quest to find her mother.

Chalamet launched himself in an unforgettable way to movie star status in call me by your name, and for this second collaboration with Guadagnino, the director has offered him a role that both showcases his uninhibited brashness – the actor’s ardent fans will go wild for an impromptu dance he puts on “Lick It Up” of KISS at one point – and her raw and touching vulnerability. But bones and all is even more Maren’s story than Lee’s, and Russell’s disarmingly pure and authentic performance deserves to place her in the firmament of the stars alongside Chalamet. As she once demonstrated in director Trey Edward Shults’ underrated family tragedy Waves, Russell possesses an unapologetically emotional candor as a performer. A big part of what makes the movie so moving is watching Maren, steeped in that Russell candor, tackle the school-too-cool walls Lee set up to get to know and love the real him. .

OS AND ALL | Theatrical trailer

The film’s affection for its characters extends even to the sinister Sully, who desperately clings to Maren out of fatherly impulse he has no sure and healthy way to channel elsewhere. The brilliant Rylance, equipped with a set of rotting fake chompers and a dangling rat tail, makes him a figure even more poignant than frightening. As a result, the film’s only major storytelling flaw is when it attempts to jam Sully into a limiting “villain” box for a contrived climax that feels too conventional for what is otherwise a handcrafted horror/romance gem that unconventionally connects its gore with piercing meaning. of loss and melancholy instead of the demands of the traditional horror formula.

Like a love story centered around two teenage outcasts who find each other, bones and all has so much in common with Guadagnino’s wonderfully lush HBO miniseries we are who we are as he does with Suspiria. The gorgeous Italian setting of this long-running project is obviously more inviting, though Guadagnino is equally evocative in rendering. bones and allhaunted Central America. Dusty windows, half-evaporated puddles, and intimidating power lines that clash jarringly across expanses of unspoiled nature beautifully reflect the desolation felt by the marginalized central characters.

Guadagnino’s formidable crew also deserve credit for shaping the film world, including Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and regular songwriting partner Atticus Ross, who contribute to a gripping score that imaginatively combines alternative acoustic scratches with intense synthesizer explosions. As bones and all itself, it’s both bizarre and heartfelt in a special, singular way.

There it is, easily the greatest sporting spectacle on the planet. Cricket fans often cite Mike Marqusee’s iconic description of an Indo-Pakistani cricket match as “war minus shots”; In football, El Salvador and Honduras actually went to war after a hard-fought World Cup qualifying tournament in 1969. Nothing quite matches the kind of passion and interest that a World Cup brings. of FIFA. And in its 92-year history, the tournament has done just about everything on and off the pitch, from headbutts and sheikhs invading the pitch to ‘hand of God’ and phantom goals.

Here are some of the lesser-known, but fascinating characters that made this tournament so special in its early days.

Concession

Few players have played in two consecutive World Cup finals. Only one had the distinction of playing two consecutive finals for different countries. The man in question, Luis Monti, was quite a character. A skilful Argentinian centre-half, he had been the main thorn in the Uruguayan’s flesh defense in the 1928 Olympic final.

In 1930, with the final in Montevideo, Uruguayan fans took no risks. After a tense first half, the Argentines were actually leading 2-1, when a series of messages arrived in their dressing room threatening Monti, his wife and sister, with dire consequences if the Argentine won. They ended up conceding three goals in the second half and Monti and his teammates made it home safely.

The next time it was a little more complicated. Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, like many after him, thought sport was a great way to build his brand. He was looking to put together the best team possible for the 1934 World Cup hosted by Italy. Romagna-born Monti was a natural target and lured in to play for Italy after a club offer from Juventus worth 20 times his salary. Monti duly transferred his nationality and was one of the stars of the Italian team as they reached the final against the Czechs.

And then the threats came, this time not from the fans, but from the Duce himself. And as Monti and his teammates knew, it was much easier to deliberately lose a game than to win one. After a very tense 90 minutes, where the Czechs led almost the entire time before the Italians finally equalized, the Italians managed to secure an extra-time winner much to everyone’s relief.

When they finally posed with the trophy with Mussolini, they found that in addition to the Jules Rimet trophy for the winners, the Italian leader had ordered another, much larger trophy so that the historic victory could be properly commemorated.

50 year sentence

If Monti finally found redemption, another star spent his whole life searching but never found it. Moacir Barbosa was the Brazilian goalkeeper, one of the stars of the Copa America winning team in 1949. Brazil hosted the 1950 World Cup and only had to draw their last game against Uruguay to win in front of nearly 2,00,000 people at the Maracana Stadium, the largest crowd in World Cup history. With 11 minutes remaining, the game was 1-1 when Uruguay striker Alcides Ghiggia crossed. Barbosa anticipated a cross and left his goal line to deny the pass, but Ghiggia simply punched the ball through the space left by the keeper. The crowd was stunned and Uruguay had won their second World Cup and Barbosa was blamed for the loss. After retiring from football, he worked in the stadium and had to endure the sight of the same goal posts for another 13 years, before they finally presented him with the posts, which he took home and burned. . He died in 2000, one of his last statements being, “The maximum sentence in Brazil is 30 years in prison, but I’ve been paying for 50 years for something I’m not even responsible for.” Barbosa was forgiven but the goal, known as the Maracanazo, has still not been forgotten.

The historic triple

Brazil fans managed to recover from the heartbreak of 1950 in a few years, mainly thanks to Pelé and a man whose right foot was six inches shorter than his left, both of them turning in different directions. Rosa, an older sister, noticed that Manuel Santos was much smaller than her friends and decided to name him Garrincha, Portuguese for troglodyte. Garrincha was an absolute monster as a footballer, able to dribble through almost any defense and completely uncontrollable off the pitch as well. By the time he became a professional footballer, still a teenager, he was already a husband and father. Brazil coaches were reluctant to pick him due to his showboating and when he finally made the World Cup squad in 1958 he was dropped from the first two matches because just 10 days earlier he had had decided to show off his skills by dodging a goalkeeper. then wait at the line for the keeper to return before dodging it again. Anyway, when they decided to face Garrincha in the World Cup, he and Pele were irresistible. Brazil never lost a match the two played together, and more importantly, when Pelé was injured in the 1962 World Cup, it was Garrincha who brought them home, finding themselves with the Golden Boot, the Golden Ball and the World Cup trophy, a treble no other player has managed. He retired at age 39 and died when he was only 49 due to cirrhosis of the liver. Next to his epitaph, fans wrote ‘ Obrigado, Garrincha, por você ter vivido’ (thank you, Garrincha, for living).

There were many heroes in England’s 1966 World Cup triumph on home soil, but the most famous were just four at the time. In March 1966, the trophy was stolen, and although there was a ransom note and subsequent arrest, the trophy was not returned. Pickles, a black and white collie, was walking with his pet owner when he sniffed the trophy. A grateful nation named him Dog of the Year and he even starred in a movie, The cold-nosed spy. It turns out that the trophy picked up by Pickles was also stolen in Brazil in 1983, but this time there were no canines to the rescue.

lost shoes

The Hall of Fame of eccentrics who have graced this tournament ranges from Kuwaiti Prince Fahad Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who burst onto the pitch and got a French goal disallowed by a confused referee, to Rene Higuita, the Colombian goalkeeper known as El Loco (the madman), who tried to dribble past Roger Milla and cost his side the tournament. Paul Gascoigne, England’s star midfielder, who, while endorsing Adidas, actually forgot his shoes and borrowed Nike cleats and cost himself dearly. And of course, the one and only Maradona. His retirement never stopped him from making headlines; he once promised his 2010 Argentina team that he would run naked through the streets of Buenos Aires if they won.

And this year’s World Cup promises to keep the flag flying, with players like Luis Suarez, known for his attacking skills and tendency to bite opponents, most recently Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini; and Neymar, whose insane skills didn’t take away from his ability to take a graceful dive.

Often described as “the best actress of her generation”, Meryl Streep has distinguished her career by her versatility and her ability to adapt to accents. The actress began her stage career in 1975, appearing in Trelawny des Puits.

Just two years later, Streep made the rapid transition to acting when she landed the role of Anne Marie in Fred Zinnemann’s Holocaust drama. Julia. From there, the actress went on to become one of cinema’s greatest, with 21 Oscar nominations, winning three, and a record 32 Golden Globe Award nominations, winning eight.She has also received two British Academy Film Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and three Primetime Emmy Awards.

Streep recently expressed his admiration and affection for another screen legend, Robert De Niro, who is also considered one of the greatest of his generation. De Niro gained acclaim primarily through his collaborations with legendary director Martin Scorsese, as well as other roles where he showcased his polished range.

The actor’s most notable films include the Scorsese classics Taxi driver, angry bull and Casino. He also performed more comedic roles such as Walk the dog and Meet the parents. De Niro and Streep appeared in four films together; To fall in love, Marvin’s room, The deer hunter and the good hunter. The two have built a close friendship that goes beyond the fact that they don’t speak to each other every day.

Streep recently shared how she discovered De Niro as an actor, which later led her to become an actress.

The movie star spoke at a University of Texas event honoring the actor about the first time she saw De Niro on the big screen. After discovering that a classmate had acted in a movie, Streep and some friends headed to the theater to see the 1973 film Hit the drum slowlythe story of two baseball players.

She said she thought her friend Michael Moriarty gave a “great” performance, it was his Italian co-star who caught her attention the most. “Michael was awesome, but we all agreed that the kid they found down south, non-actor, clearly non-actor, amazing performance,” Streep shared, “we thought they must have gone through the Appalachia to find this guy.”

Streep would soon cross paths with De Niro again when she went to see one of her greatest hits and Scorsese twice. average streets stars Harvey Keitel with De Niro in a supporting role and explores street life in Little Italy. A little hood tries to free himself from the dangers of his debt with a vicious loan shark. He asks for help from a friend who is also involved in criminal activities.

For his role as “Johnny Boy” Civello, De Niro won National Society and New York Film Critics Circle awards for Best Supporting Actor. In 1997, the Library of Congress has selected average streets for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”.

“There’s the same kid,” Streep shares his thoughts as he watches, “only this once… a New York punk, and he’s mean, you know, fast-talking Street Smart Guy.” The actress again emphasizes her reaction to De Niro’s on-screen magnetic energy. “We were blown away, we went through the credits and saw his name, I said my God, he’s Italian. This is Robert D Nero”.

The last film that influenced Streep’s acting career was De Niro’s most famous role in one of Scorsese’s greatest. Taxi driver is a psychological drama following the life of former veteran Travis Bickle. De Niro’s performance in this film is undeniably complex as he is both charming and dangerous, magnetic yet sinister.

She also revealed that when asked which other movie stars she looked up to, Streep was very fond of De Niro after seeing this movie. “I said to myself, this is the kind of actor I want to be. This is what I want to do. And I want to do it with the commitment and the passion and the skill and the beauty that it is. And it was my beacon for 50 years.

Ali Abbasi knows the exact movie that forever changed his way of seeing cinema. As a college student in Tehran, “I wasn’t interested in movies,” he recalls. “My thing was literature. I always felt like movies were for the masses and cinema wasn’t something I wanted to spend my life doing.”

That changed, however, when Abbasi came across Federico Fellini’s quintessential classic, La Strada. “It’s an experience that couldn’t have existed in the same way as a written story. It has its own independence, authority and integrity,” he explains. “It might be a little offensive to say that, but I didn’t think movies were capable of doing that.”

The Iranian-born, Danish-based writer and director studied at the National Film School of Denmark before making his debut with the 2016 horror film, Shelly. He gained international fame with his second film, 2018 Border, which won the Un Certain Regard prize at the Cannes Film Festival. (He was also nominated for an Oscar in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category.) His latest is the Persian film noir, holy spider.

AFTER: For Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi, making ‘Holy Spider’ was an (exclusive) political act

Fellini changed the trajectory of Abbasi’s life and still inspires his approach to the filmmaking process. “I loved how he talked about having an idea,” he says of the Italian author. “A lot of people ask me as a filmmaker, ‘How do you come up with your ideas?’ and you kind of have to make up a story. But Fellini would say things like, ‘I was driving my car. I went out and looked at the sky and it was very dark, then I had the idea to 8 ½.'”

“It was interesting in itself,” explains the filmmaker. “An artist’s thought process isn’t something concrete that starts at A and ends at Z, you know? You can see that in Fellini’s films.”

Below, Abbasi shares with A.frame five other films that had a major impact on him.

‘Nostalgia’ Director Mario Martone & Ippolita Di Majo Discuss Italy’s Oscar Entry – Contenders New York – Deadline https://anteospaziocinema.com/nostalgia-director-mario-martone-ippolita-di-majo-discuss-italys-oscar-entry-contenders-new-york-deadline/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 18:22:00 +0000 https://anteospaziocinema.com/nostalgia-director-mario-martone-ippolita-di-majo-discuss-italys-oscar-entry-contenders-new-york-deadline/ Italian director Mario Martone said his latest film Nostalgia is very similar to his 1995 film The molesto love (disturbing love).

Italian director Mario Martone said his latest film Nostalgia is very similar to his 1995 film The molesto love (disturbing love).

During a panel discussion at Deadline’s Contenders Film: New York event, Martone explained the connection between adapting Elena Ferrante’s debut novel The molesto love and Ermanno Rea’s book Nostalgia for the big screen.

“In The molesto love we followed this woman,” Martone said. “We walk alongside him and step into his past. In Nostalgia, something similar happens. You have a man, and we walk with him and step into his past.

Nostalgia, presented in preview this year at the Cannes Film Festival, follows Felice Lasco, played by Pierfrancesco Favino, who, after having lived 40 years abroad, returns to Naples and rediscovers the places and codes of the city, facing a past that gnaws at him. Last month, Glass Pictures acquired the North American rights to Nostalgiawhich is Italy’s entry for the International Feature Film Oscar.

Rea’s book appealed to Martone for several reasons.

“It’s a mysterious book,” he said. “Maybe you can consider this as a gangster story because of course there is a criminal situation between Felice and another character, but that’s just one level of the story. The sound of the story (was strong) and the character is not a hero.

Martone co-wrote Nostalgia with Ippolita Di Majo, who also found the book intriguingly complex.

“I was also very impressed with the human side of Felice,” Di Majo said on stage. “(He is) someone whose roots were torn apart. He had to leave by force and almost forgot where he came from. He forgot his language. So this separation was violent. And then there has a throwback theme in a nostalgic way. The other thing that stood out to me a lot about this character who is a man is his feminine side. There is a possibility of softness in him in the way he takes care of her mother. In terms of taking care of the physical body in Italy, traditionally it’s considered a woman’s job, whereas in this case we see Felice taking care of it, so her feminine side is very important.

Nostalgia is Martone’s 10th feature film. Alongside Favino, the film stars Francesco Di Leva, Tommaso Ragno, Aurora Quattrocchi and Sofia Essaidi.

James Gray has started writing his new film, armageddon time, after taking a trip to her childhood home in Fresh Meadows, Queens with her own children a few years ago. One of the only pieces of evidence that his family ever lived there was, he tells me, “a gate my father had built around the garbage cans that had a majestic g for Grey, which had come out of its hinges. He thought of the dinners, the gatherings, and the death of his entire family living there, except for his brother. “I was filled with a real melancholy,” Gray said. “And I started to feel like there was no memory of their existence.”

This realization sent Gray on a journey into creative territory he had until now mostly avoided: his memories. Gray has spent much of his career making films about New York, but his last two projects, the masterful tropical epic The Lost City of Z and the dismal sci-fi blockbuster Ad Astra, had taken him very far. “I made a movie in the jungle, which was… very physically demanding, and then I made Ad Astra, which was taxing for other reasons,” he told me, referring to the film’s troubled post-production. “I wanted to rediscover my love for the medium.” The result is armageddon time, a bittersweet memoir set in 1980 about a pivotal moment in Gray’s adolescence as a middle-class Jewish child growing up in deep Queens. The film also takes into account the venal politics of the time, which Gray sees as a wake-up call for our polarized present.

To tell this story, Gray went as specific as possible. armageddon time follows temperamental sixth grader Paul Graff (played by Banks Repeta), whose parents, Esther (Anne Hathaway) and Irving (Jeremy Strong), transfer him to a private school out of concern for his classroom behavior and his notes. Gray turns this change of life into a ruthless exploration of class and privilege in a time of changing American mores. The Graffs, though confident of their Jewishness, are eager to assimilate, which puts their son in the same school that the Trump family, then avatars of the wealth of New York’s outer neighborhoods, attended.

This kind of aspiration was what the wrought iron of the family home g signified to Grey: a status totem on an otherwise modest property. In armageddon time, the equally humble Graffs family is often in a state of talkative chaos, sometimes against the backdrop of feuds or outright wars. Strong’s performance is the kind of riveting piece of self-loathing the actor excels at, tying the character’s class anxieties to his struggle to project authority in the home. armageddon time also explores Paul’s relationship with his loving immigrant grandfather Aaron (Anthony Hopkins); his difficulties as a student; and his bond with a black classmate named Johnny (Jaylin Webb), who has no access to any of the help Paul eventually gets. The film is steeped in both love and guilt, a complex depiction of parenthood with a bittersweet view of the costs of assimilation.

Additionally, the film features a one-scene appearance by New York City housing magnate Fred Trump and his daughter Maryanne (played by John Diehl and Jessica Chastain, respectively), who Paul clashes with on his first day at his new school. . The cameo is based on something Gray says happened when he started attending Kew-Forest School, of which both Maryanne and Donald Trump were alumni. According to Gray, he was barked at by Fred in a hallway; later that day, he had to listen to a motivational speech from Maryanne in the auditorium, insisting that hard work was the key to his success. When we spoke, Gray recalled the saying about people oblivious to their privilege: “He was born on third base and thought he hit a triple.” “That was the talk,” Gray said. “I remember being like, What the hell are you talking about?

The sudden appearance of the Trumps in armageddon time is a shocking, funny childhood memory that quickly freezes as Maryanne begins to lecture the students about personal responsibility. Knowledge of the Trumps’ presence in modern America is also the unsettling aftertaste of Gray’s nostalgia – the idea that a family he viewed as villains in school came to dominate the discourse. Politics. “I started, in my own pathetic way, to think that 1980 is a very important year in the history of the country,” Gray told me. It was the year of the Reagan Revolution, a political realignment for the country. But it was also a tragic time for two of Gray’s idols: Muhammad Ali, who lost a brutal fight to Larry Holmes in October 1980 that essentially ended his career, and John Lennon, who was killed in December of the same year. “They both represented integrity to me,” Gray said.

For the director, the Reagan era was the start of a decline in values ​​that led to the election of Donald Trump decades later. “Crisis #1 for me is that we haven’t yet found a way to monetize integrity. All of our problems stem from that,” Gray continued. “Everything becomes transactional, your only value is how much money you make, and integrity doesn’t matter.” Donald Trump, Gray said, is “a completely transactional figure.”

Yet the film also speaks to the dreams of Gray’s parents, social class, and the “roots of what we call white privilege.” His closest inspiration was Federico Fellini’s film Amarcordwhich combines a semi-autobiographical portrait featuring the director’s childhood memories with an illustration of Mussolini’s heyday of power and fascism in 1930s Italy.

Our discussion turned to Father Coughlin, a priest and broadcaster who attracted a massive following in the 1930s and launched anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi rhetoric on the eve of World War II. “I believe he had 30 million listeners a week,” Gray said. “How many people were there in the United States in 1936? I’ll guess 100 million” (I checked, it was about 128 million). Explosions in popularity for such personalities, quasi-celebrities who mix populist appeal and right-wing politics, are not new phenomena, but Gray thinks people should pay more attention to them to understand our current moment. . “It’s hard to look at world history and not see a strange propensity that our species has for fascism,” he said. “It’s an unbearable thought.”

The travel mistake to avoid

I brought eight suitcases to Italy, while my friends all brought these tiny suitcases with killer outfits. I learned from them to only keep a few items and then you don’t have all that luggage to take everywhere. It ended up being a huge imposition!

In Taormina, I went up to a small church called Chiesa Madonna della Rocca. It has a magnificent view of the sea. My hiking outfit? Always a pink and black Diane von Furstenberg skirt.

In Joan Thiele’s last song “Proiettili”, which means “Bullets” in Italian, a verse recites: “I will stay closer and closer to my dream”.

With two albums, another in preparation and “Proiettili”, the official song of the film “Ti Mangio il Cuore”, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September, Alessandra Joan Thiele, alias Joan Thiele, regularly performs her dream. true.

“I can’t remember when I decided I wanted to be a singer and a musician, but since I was little I always knew I wanted it to be my job and my life,” says Thiele.

Her journey to success hasn’t been all glitz and glamour. At 20, after a brief period in the UK where she gained some experience in the music industry, Thiele returned to her hometown on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

“At that time, my parents rightly told me that if I wanted to turn my passion into a job, I had to support myself,” says Thiele, now 31. and pubs – wherever I could make money. Then I was noticed by an agent and from that moment everything changed.

It also changed the way she crafted her own music, as she decided to switch from singing in English to her mother tongue, Italian. Although she was aware that this could close her to a certain audience that she had built up over the years, Thiele felt the need to link her “musical identity to my cultural identity and with English I could not find my own size. She also explains that “when I was younger I used to sing in English because I thought it might open more doors and maybe that was the only reason I did it.”

Despite the unconventional choice, Thiele remains relevant through the fusion of various musical styles and genres and the inspirations she draws from her background. “I was born in Colombia because my father lives there, then at the age of six I moved to Italy with my mother. I’ve always been drawn to different cultures and it’s funny because every time I fly to Colombia changes happen in my life. So I always associate travel with that.

This year marked an important milestone for Thiele, as she was chosen to write and produce the official soundtrack for Pippo Mezzapesa’s latest film, “Ti Mangio il Cuore”. “Working for this project was a great and interesting experience. My music is very visual and cinema is its sublimation, so it fits perfectly,” she observes.

The film is based on the investigative novel of the same title written by Carlo Bonini and Giuliano Foschini and is inspired by the true story of Rosa Di Fiore, the first state informant from the Gargano mafia, which mainly operated in the Puglia region around the 70s and 80s.

Thiele explains that “Even though it is a dramatic and violent film, it also shows a sense of freedom as Marilena [the main character, played by Italian singer and actress Elodie] decided to do an act of extreme courage. So I wanted to focus the song on that.

The song also features Elodie and was produced by Thiele with Emanuele Triglia, who also curated the text in collaboration with another important Italian artist, Elisa.

Thiele’s multi-faceted art also includes a “non-superficial relationship with fashion”, as she likes to describe it. Indeed, last year, Thiele was seen wearing head-to-toe designer looks, such as Serhat Işık and Benjamin A. Huseby’s black Trussardi leather dress that she wore to the film’s premiere in Venice. or the vintage Valentino Couture ensemble worn at the Sustainable Fashion Awards in Milan. She was also seen sitting front row at the Loewe show held in Paris during fashion week.

She “respects and admires fashion” and believes that “clothing can definitely enrich a musician’s work and what they want to express, especially now that everything has become so visual. I always say my music is whimsical, not tied to an image and I believe fashion often tells a story. My favorite designers are Antonio Marras, Gianfranco Ferrè, Jonathan Anderson and recently I also started following the work of Daniel Del Core [who is behind the brand Del Core].”

Thiele has just finished his summer tour in Italy. But she doesn’t pause.

“I’m currently focused on giving my best for the album I’m working on. I still can’t say when it will be released, but it will be very soon.

Edward Norton had no choice when it came to starring in the Italian job https://anteospaziocinema.com/edward-norton-had-no-choice-when-it-came-to-starring-in-the-italian-job/ Thu, 20 Oct 2022 19:44:00 +0000 https://anteospaziocinema.com/edward-norton-had-no-choice-when-it-came-to-starring-in-the-italian-job/ Whether you buy into Norton’s theory or consider him just another spoiled Hollywood star, the actor’s story suggests he sees himself as more than just another on-screen face.

Whether you buy into Norton’s theory or consider him just another spoiled Hollywood star, the actor’s story suggests he sees himself as more than just another on-screen face. He’s not the kind of actor who shows up, stands up, says his lines and leaves the rest to others. Whenever he is dissatisfied with the work of others, he does not hesitate to step on toes to make the film he believes should be made.

In 2002, The LA Times asked Norton about his tendency to butt heads with directors, and the actor ignored him as part of the creative process. “I think conflict is a very essential thing,” he explained. “If everyone’s reasons for hustling have to do with a group desire to make things as good as possible, that’s a good thing! And I think a lot of very happy productions have produced a lot of very happy movies. banal.”

Although productions initially tolerated Norton’s control-maniacal tendencies to capitalize on his acting talent, Norton’s reputation finally caught up with him in 2008 when he fought for artistic control of “The Incredible Hulk. from Marvel, which led to her being replaced by Mark Ruffalo in the incredibly successful. “The Avengers.” At the time, /Film founder Peter Sciretta detailed Norton’s preferences for the final cut and predicted Norton’s separation from the franchise. Despite all the controversy, some argue that Norton’s Hulk is better than Ruffalo’s and lament his split from the franchise.

The story suggests that Edward Norton thrives on antagonistic filmmakers, and much to the chagrin of studios and directors, a lack of friction seems to result in a happy production, but produces a lackluster performance from the award-winning actor.
