film profile] into movie theatres for the first Italian releases with Tucker Film: on June 27 in Perugia at the Zenith cinema, on June 28 in Udine at the Visionario and in Pordenone at the Cinemazero, on June 29 in Mantova, at the Cinema del Carbone, where the director will introduce his vision to spectators. Other Italian cities will follow the initial release, including Rome and Milan on July 4. Successfully presented in Venice, the film has been included today at the Pesaro Festival.
Amore Carne is coming out today in Paris with Le Films du Paradoxe. In France, Delbono has literally been praised by daily Le Monde, which dedicated an entire page to the film yesterday, including a mention on the front page. Critic Jacques Mandelbaum defines it "a rabid film, lyrical, perturbing…. A passionate digression on death… A little film, rich in feeling, intuition and emotions… A Marie-Agnès Gillot film evoking grace and suffering together to the image of film itself: the elegant balance of a great living being suspended above death.”
Amore Carne stars Bobò, Irène Jacob, Marie-Agnès Gillot, Margherita Delbono, Sophie Calle, Marisa Berenson and Tilda Swinton and was produced by Pippo Delbono, Cinémathèque Suisse and Casa-Azul. The film, which was shot using a smartphone and a small camera, is a journey made up of unique moments, ordinary and extraordinary encounters, from the room of a hotel in Paris and another one in Budapest, through famous and non-famous witnesses who tell or dance their vision of the universe. Music is by Alexander Balanescu and Laurie Anderson.
