Director Ivano De Matteo

Filming commenced today in Bassano del Grappa in the Veneto region of Italy on the new film by Ivano De Matteo, Villetta con ospiti, an Italian-French co-production by Rodeo Drive with RAI Cinema and Les Films d'Ici.

Written by De Matteo with his partner Valentina Ferlan, the film focuses on twenty-four hours in the life of a bourgeois family in a wealthy town in northern Italy. By day, the ladies and their husbands show off their public virtue at coffee tables, but by night, the local town’s dark side comes to life in a succession of cruelty and violence. The seven deadly sins incarnated by the seven protagonists make themselves known almost innocently. No one can be accused of anything in particular even if, all together, they’re guilty of the worst of sins.
