Watch: New US Trailer for 'Youth' with Michael Caine & Harvey Keitel
"Who were you? 'Who?' - that's what I always ask myself…" Fox Searchlight has debuted their new official US trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, starring Michael Caine as an aging composer who retreats with his filmmaker friend, played by Harvey Keitel, to a spa in the Alps. There they encounter some interesting characters and discuss life, and youth, and beauty, and more. Rachel Weisz also stars as Caine's daughter, who also joins him on the trip. The cast includes Paul Dano, Jane Fonda and Ed Stoppard. This trailer starts out looking like a fun indie comedy, then becomes something very poetic in the second half. The best trailer yet, very moving - I can't wait to see this. "I don't owe anybody anything, I did it myself!" Enjoy it.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, from Fox Searchlight's YouTube:
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. After this first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, Fox Searchlight will be releasing Youth to theaters December 4th.
This Italian director (check La Grande Bellezza) tends to make, at first sight, similar movies. But they have some visual and poetic beauty which I can't and am not willing to resist. Oh yeah, I'm watching this. And I like that European nuance in film making with mostly American and British actors ...

It must be such a fascinating existence to be a living legend.

Probably not. You just have lots of money to spare and get recognized a lot, which likely limits your horizon.

Interesting how much Michael Caine is made up to look like the Tony Servillo character in The Great Beauty...
