CASTELLO CAVALCANTI by Wes Anderson for PRADA New York Screening

By  |  Comments


The must see Wes Anderson short film Castello Cavalcanti created in collaboration with PRADA was screened yesterday in the New York Epicenter at 575 Broadway. The film following a racing tale in 1955 in a humorous way celebrates Italian culture.

Castello Cavalcanti is part of Anderson‟s ongoing auteur universe, which includes the „modern classics‟, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom — except this time, we‟re in Italy, it‟s September 1955, and Jason Schwartzman has just crashed his racing car into Jesus Christ. What ensues is a „Wes Andersonian‟ folk tale about fate. Filmed on a pitch-perfect period set in Cinecittà, Castello Cavalcanti finds the urbane, slick Schwartzman stranded in a small town that‟s been skipped over by modernity. “Where am I?” he asks. The locals pause from playing cards and point at a brick building: “Castello Cavalcanti.” It‟s a one piazza kind of place, where everyone‟s distantly related to everyone else, the bus comes not very often, and family secrets are shared over spaghetti. – from PRADA
