The Wedding Director December 31, 1969
The Wedding Director

Synopsis: For forty years Marco Bellocchio has been the Italian cinema?s reigning iconoclast, aiming his barbed skepticism at such sacred cows as the family (Fists in the Pocket), the church (My Mother?s Smile), and the political left (China Is Near). In The Wedding Director, he peers into the looking-glass to produce a self-reflexive satire of the world of filmmaking.

Sergio Castellitto (Don?t Move, Mostly Martha) plays Franco Elica, a dissolute movie director who slides into despair after being asked - to his horror - to make yet another version of Alessandro Manzoni's The Betrothed. Complicating matters is news that a looming sexual-harassment scandal is about to break.

Starring: Sergio Castellitto, Sami Frey
Directed by: Marco Bellocchio
