Full Italian Trailer for Sorrentino's 'Youth' Featuring Michael Caine
With Cannes just a few weeks away, another stunning new trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's In-Competition film Youth has debuted. Starring Michael Caine and Paul Dano as old friends on vacation at a hotel in the Alps, along with Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz. This new trailer is unfortunately all in Italian (see the teaser for English) but provides us with a glimpse at some of the visual imagery, including the scene where Caine conducts on the side of a hill. I'm looking forward to this especially because Caine seems to be at his best with a moving performance. Fox Searchlight will likely end up distributing in the US, but for now it's set to premiere in Cannes soon. This may be one everyone is talking about during the festival, so take a look.
Here's the latest trailer + poster (beneath) for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, found via The Film Stage:
Fred (Caine) and Mick (Dano), two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again. Youth, also known as The Early Years, or La giovinezza, is written & directed by Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, of This Must Be the Place and The Great Beauty previously. No release is set yet, but we expect this to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this summer before other fests later this fall.
