The Wedding Director (Italian) 2006

Nominated, Critics Award (Bellocchio); David Award – Best Actress (Finocchiaro); Best Director (Bellocchio); Best Editing (Francesca Calvelli)
Winner, Best Breakthrough Actress (Donatella Finocchiaro); Best Cinematography (Pasquale Mari); Best Film, Golden Globes-Italy

Written and directed by Marco Bellocchio
Starring Sergio Castellito, Donatella Finocchiaro and Sami Frey

A tongue-in-cheek tale about Franco Elica (Castellito), a movie director who flees to Sicily to escape accusations about sexual misconduct from the women who audition for him. Under pressure from a fan of his, Elica ends up agreeing to film the wedding of the daughter of a prince.

As noted in the above awards, the cinematography and film editing deserve special mention. Reflecting Elica’s detached directorial view of the events surrounding him, they contribute to the satirical nature of the film.

100 min. Rated R.
