Taormina Film Fest: Coppola arrives for the 50th anniversary of the ‘Godfather’

-

Two luxury anniversaries, in different if not opposite spheres: the 50th anniversary of the ‘Godfather’ and the 40th anniversary of the Azzurri’s victory at the Mundial; and a recent memory, the death of Ennio Morricone. Among these events – with exceptional witnesses the directors Francis Ford Coppola and Giuseppe Tornatore – two absolute protagonists: women first of all; and then, Sicily. These are the main ingredients of the 68th edition of ‘Taormina Film Fest’, which will take place from 26 June to 2 July with the delivery of the Cariddi d’Oro and d’Argento awards, presented in the Sicilian tourist pearl by the three artistic directors Federico Pontiggia, Alessandra De Luca and Francesco Alò and the institutional representatives. The red carpet – in addition to Coppola for the restored version of the ‘Godfather’ and Tornatore for the docufilm ‘Ennio’ – will also see artists such as Diane Warren, Sofia Carson, Eva Longoria, Ferzan Ozpetek, Marco Giallini, Isabella Ferrari, Catherine Hardwicke and the Azzurri of the 1982 world soccer champion national team, represented by Marco Tardelli, Fulvio Collovati, Beppe Dossena and Franco Selvaggi, protagonists in the Mundial which preserves as an iconic final image the arms raised to the sky for joy by the President of the Republic, Sandro Pertini, in the grandstand of the Madrid stadium, next to the King of Spain and the Chancellor of Germany. But also singers like Raphael Gualazzi, Mario Venuti, Kaballà. At the Ancient Greek-Roman Theater of Taormina, set on the hill with the natural and scenographic background of the Ionian Sea and Etna (with the volcano that could also decide to give a show to itself …) six ‘first’ or ‘seconde’ works will be in international competition. These are the titles: the thriller ‘American Murderer’ by the American director of Italian origins Matthew Gentil; Philip Barantini’s English comedy ‘Boling Point’; the dramatic ‘Baby Pyramid’ by Denmark’s Cecilie McNair; the western ‘The Drover’s Wife: the legend of Molly Johnson’ written and directed and starring Aboriginal Australian Leah Purcel; and the Italian films ‘The voices alone’ by Andrea Brusa and Marco Scotuzzi with Giovanni Storti on the side effects of social media and ‘Io e Spotty’ by Cosimo Gomez with Filippo Scotti, former Mastroianni prize at the Venice Film Festival for his interpretation in ‘It was the hand of God’ by Paolo Sorrentino. Hardwicke, Taraji P. Henson, Leena Yadav, Mipo O, Silvia Carobbio and Lucia Bulgheroni who stars Jennifer Hudson, Cara Delevingne, Margherita Buy, Marcia Gay Arden, Leonor Varela, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ann Watanabe and Eva Longoria. Italian will also be represented by the premiere of ‘My shadow is yours’, a love story based on the novel by Edoardo Nesi Premio Strega, which marks the return to directing by Eugenio Cappuccio. Then, to the delight of young and old, the Minions also arrive with the world premiere of ‘Minions 2 – Come Gru becomes very bad’ by Kyle Balda, the new chapter of the animated film, with a special introduction by Max Giusti, voice of the evil Gru, who will interact with the Minions in a 3D hologram. And, speaking of images, the official poster of ‘Taormina Film Fest’ pays homage to two great icons of Italian comedy such as Vittorio Gassman and Ugo Tognazzi, who will be remembered by children, Paola Gassman and Gian Marco Tognazzi and the screening of ‘Come to take a coffee with us’ by Alberto Lattuada with Tognazzi and ‘Without family, propertyless, seek affection’ directed and performed by Gassman, in the versions restored by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia A Festival, that of Taormina, well rooted in the themes of the present, which does not forget the past but which looks to the future with confidence.
