Following World Cup fever, Brazil is poised to get even more attention, at least internationally, with the romantic anthology Rio, I Love You, inspired by the previous projects Paris, je t'aime and New York, I Love You. As one would expect, two trailers showcase a charming collection of short stories, all set in some gorgeous and interesting locales in the South American setting, and it looks much better than the animated film which shares its title with the city as well. Directors like Fernando Meirelles (City of God), John Turturro (Fading Gigolo) and Jose Padilha (RoboCop) all directed segments, and it looks wonderful.
Rio, I Love You is an anthology of short stories following in the same footsteps as New York, I Love You and Paris, je t'aime. The film features shorts directed by Fernando Meirelles (City of God), Carlos Saldanha (Ice Age, Rio), José Padilha (RoboCop, Elite Squad), John Turturro (Fading Gigolo) Im Sang-soo (The Housemaid), Stephan Elliott (Easy Virtue), Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty), Guillermo Arriaga (Babel), Andrucha Waddington (Party Crashers) and Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?) with stars like Vincent Cassel, Rodrigo Santoro, Jason Isaacs, Ryan Kwanten, Emily Mortimer and Harvey Keitel appearing. The film hits Brazil this fall onSeptember 11th, but there's no US release date yet. Lovely?
