Editorial Reviews

Franco Elica is a dissolute movie director who slides into despair after being asked - to his horror - to make a film. Hoping to avoid a looming sexual-harassment scandal, Franco flees to Sicily where he hides out and meets a host of colorful characters: a man who makes his living shooting wedding films, a film director who is faking his own death to finally achieve fame, and a cultured Prince.

The menacing Prince, a huge fan of Franco's movies, commissions him to shoot the wedding of his tempestuous daughter, Bona, with whom Elica quickly falls impulsively, dangerously in love and whose wedding he becomes driven to sabotage at all costs.

Beneath the film's farcical surface is a scathing vision of a cinema in decline: As the cinema goes, so goes the nation - The Wedding Director is an implicit indictment of a moribund country and a wake-up call for revitalization, peering into the looking-glass to produce a self-reflexive satire of the world of filmmaking.

"EXTRAVAGANT. HUGELY ENTERTAINING. Virtuoso auteur filmmaking that interweaves scathingly funny sequences with surreal fantasy." London Film Festival

"Many Laugh out-loud scenes. A rich vein of satire. Anyone who loves Italian likely to be seduced by (this film)." A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"An astonishingly exuberant expression of the will to live... plays like an art film's ambiguous recreation of The Graduate." Michael Joshua Rowin, The L Magazine
