Another title In Competition for Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival 2010.
Next project that we’re going to talk about is movie titled La Passione or if you prefer The Passion from Italian director Carlo Mazzacurati who was in charge for the script as well, together with Umberto Contarello, Doriana Leondeff and Marco Pettenello.
Check out the La Passione synopsis: “When you’re over fifty, it becomes increasingly difficult to be an up-and-coming director. Gianni Dubois knows this only too well. He hasn’t made a film for years, and now that he has the chance to direct a young TV star he can’t even think up an idea for a story.
As if this wasn’t enough, a leak in his apartment in Tuscany has ruined the 16th-century fresco in the chapel next door. To avoid being sued and publicly shamed, Gianni must accept the bizarre proposal of the town major to direct the Good Friday celebrations in exchange for immunity.
And so he finds himself spending a week in deepest Tuscany trying to put together a kind of Stations of the Cross, with the apostles, Pontius Pilate, the crucifixion, and a terrible and incredibly vain local actor in the part of Christ.”
La Passione stars Kasia Smutniak, Stefania Sandrelli, Cristiana Capotondi, Silvio Orlando and Giuseppe Battiston.
