Before the official opening of the St. Ali Italian Film Festival, be among the first to experience a taste of the festival with an exclusive Prosecco Preview of Italian box office hit comedy A Brighter Tomorrow . From the legendary Nanni Moretti, the film is a multi-layered new comedy about filmmaking in the age of the streaming giants and comes direct from the 2023 Cannes Film Festival. Book here for a glass of Prosecco on arrival before the Australian premiere screening on 13 September 2023 at 6.30pm.
Moretti himself stars as Giovanni, a prolific, pedantic Roman movie director who has just started shooting ‘A Brighter Tomorrow’, a new period drama but everything, both personal and professional, seems to be conspiring against Giovanni: his 40-year marriage and working relationship with Paola (Margherita Buy) is in crisis, his French co-producer Pierre (Mathieu Amalric) is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the commercial prospects of his new film in a rapidly changing market are decidedly uncertain. It may be time for Giovanni to start rethinking his stringent way of doing things. You'll find the usual suspects of Moretti regulars in the auteur's biggest box office hit to date. It playfully blurs the lines between his onscreen character's life and movies, with his own filmography and neuroses. Moretti invites you to come along and embrace the true joy and magic of cinema once more.
