Castello Cavalcanti

As we eagerly wait for Wes Anderson's next film The Grand Budapest Hotel next summer (and continue laughing at the "Saturday Night Live" horror movie spoof inspired by the director), the filmmaker behind The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou has just released a new short film called Castello Cavalcanti. Starring Jason Schwartzman, star of Anderson's Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited and last year's Moonrise Kingdom, the film follows an Italian-American racer in 1955 Italy after he crashes his car in a small town that surprisingly holds a family connection. It has all the charm you'd expect.

Here is Wes Anderson's short film Castello Cavalcanti, direct from Prada:

Shot by Darius Khondji (The Immigrant, Amour, Midnight in Paris), this feels like it was shot on a diorama, almost like a mixture of Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Life Aquatic. That score you're hearing comes from Alessandro Casella and Randall Poster, and Anderson wrote the short film himself. It's nice to see that Anderson stays busy in between feature films, and it would be nice if these played before his big screen endeavors. But for now, we'll just sit and wait for Fox Searchlight to release Wes Anderson's eighth feature film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, starting on March 7th, 2014 early next year. Cool short film?
