IL FILM: "REALITY"



 

Directed by Matteo Garrone
Italy/France, 2012, color, 115 min.
(In Italian with English subtitles)

After seeing a former reality TV star make an electrifying surprise appearance at his cousin’s wedding (one of several paid appearances for the enterprising self-promoter), Luciano (Aniello Arena) decides to try out for the Italian version of TV’s BIG BROTHER. Sure he will soon get the call, Luciano begins to conduct his life as if he’s already being watched.   Playing his delusions not only for laughs but thoughtful, ethical examination, the film blends a Fellini-esque love for grotesquerie and fairy-tale surrealism with gritty Neapolitan social realism.

The exquisite score is by Alexandre Desplat. Grand Prix, 2012 Cannes Film Festival; Official Selection, Karlovy Vary, Toronto Film Festivals.
