A Man Defies Physical Laws in Trailer for Netflix's The Man Without Gravity

We’ve got a really cool trailer for you to check out from Italian filmmaker Marco Bonfanti (Bozzetto non troppo), called The Man Without Gravity. Bonfanti wrote and directed the film about the life of a man whose body does not obey the physical laws of gravity. The movie looks beautifully shot and like a completely new concept, which is pretty exciting. Here’s the full description for the film:

Oscar comes to light on a stormy night, in the hospital of a small town and immediately we understand that there is something extraordinary in him : Does not obey the law of gravity. It floats in the air, hovers in the lightest room of a balloon, in front of the incredulous look of the mother and grandmother. The two women run away with the baby and decide to keep it hidden from the eyes of the world for many,

Netflix Trailer for Italian Indie Film About 'The Man Without Gravity'

"The world isn't how you think it is." "Why not? This is my life." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie film from Italy titled The Man Without Gravity, also known as L'uomo senza gravità in Italian. This film seems similar, in a few ways, to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But instead of a baby being born old, this baby has no connection to gravity. He just floats. A gravity-defying baby raised in seclusion matures into an extraordinary man—and an international celebrity—but he still longs for an ordinary life. Starring Elio Germano as Oscar, with a cast including Michela Cescon, Elena Cotta, Silvia D'Amico, Vincent Scarito, and Pietro Pescara. This actually looks quite charming and uplifting. Perhaps a little cliche, but still seems like a good story about how to live your own life even when everyone else wants a part of it. I'm curious about seeing this one,

Piuma Movie Review (Venice Film Festival 2016)
Title: Piuma Director: Roan Johnson Starring: Luigi Fedele, Blu Yoshimi Di Martino, Michela Cescon, Sergio Pierattini, Francesco Colella, Francesca Antonelli, Bruno Sgueglia, Francesca Turrini, Brando Pacitto, Clara Alonso. In Italian “Piuma” mean feather. Roan Johnson’s latest film tries to grasp the difficulties of millennials in confronting parenthood, as they aspire to bequeath “lightheartedness” to their children. The comedy alternates grotesque irony and schmaltzy sensationalism, by telling the story of Ferro (Luigi Fedele) and Cate (Blu Yoshimi Di Martino), two teenagers who grew up in different families, but face the same problems. Between hesitation and leaps of faith, acceptance of responsibility and hotheadedness, the two protagonists will spend the nine most [ Read More ]

Simple Physics: ‘The Theory Of Everything’ Is Specialty Box Office Whiz — Preview

Simple Physics: ‘The Theory Of Everything’ Is Specialty Box Office Whiz — Preview
This weekend is shaping up to mirror early fall, when specialty distributors packed theaters with new titles. Many of those disappeared quickly, and this weekend could be similar as companies usher in about a dozen limited-release theatrical newcomers. Focus FeaturesThe Theory Of Everything, however, has amassed a good amount of attention. Directed by Oscar winner James Marsh (Man On Wire), the Stephen Hawking biopic is opening two months after its Toronto debut. Two notable nonfiction titles also join the fray this weekend: Cinema Guild’s Actress, from director Robert Greene, and Zipporah FilmsNational Gallery by nonfiction maverick Frederick Wiseman. Both deserve attention as the awards-race heats up. Two years after the theatrical bow of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, the 16th U.S. President is the focus of Amplify’s The Better Angels — though it focuses a very different phase of his life.

Stars: Claudia Gerini, Michele Placido, Nuot Arquint, Michela Cescon, Ennio Tozzi | Written by Federico Zampaglione, Giacomo Gensini | Directed by Federico Zampaglione

Tul-pa (from the Tibetan): meaning a magically produced illusion or creation. The concept of a being or object which is created through sheer discipline alone. It is a materialized thought that has taken physical form.

Italian rock star turned director Federico Zampaglione made a splash in 2009 when his first film Shadow played to a packed audience at London’s Frightfest. Returning some three years later, Zampaglione unleashed Tulpa on an eager and willing horror-hungry audience. I originally reviewed Tulpa after the Frightfest screening last August in London and whilst I loved the film for it’s classic giallo trappings and gloriously Ott murders, many attendees felt differently.

In fact, the reaction was so mixed that director Federico Zampaglione went back to the editing room post-screening, trimming some 20 minutes

Frightfest the 13th Preview: Tulpa

Without a shadow (pardon the pun) of a doubt the one film I’m personally very excited to see is Tulpa, the brand new giallo from director Federico Zampagiione, which is a return to the true roots of the genre – as Federico said it himself in my recent interview - “… black gloves, stabbing, the atmosphere is completely different. Everything takes place in Rome, and you can tell it’s Rome. So the mood of the film is different – more sick – there are a lot of murders, eight in total, and they’re very bloody and there’s a lot of sex too”

Dare you enter the Tantric Terror of Tulpa?

Opening Film - The Seasoning House (World Premiere)

Special make-up prosthetics and splatter genius Paul Hyett makes his directorial debut with a harrowing exploration into tense claustrophobia, hard-hitting action and rollercoaster suspense. In a Balkan brothel, where girls kidnapped by soldiers in war-torn zones are prostituted to the military and civilians alike, Angel (Robin Day) is the deaf mute orphan enslaved to care for the inmates. But unbeknownst to her captors, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the seasoning house planning her escape. Psychological horror in the nerve-shredding Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski style but with an ultra-modern twist.
