Tetro

directed by Francis Ford Coppola

USA-Italy-Spain-Argentina, 2009, 127 min

Language: Subtitles

Fresh faced and naive, 17-year-old Bennie arrives in Buenos Aires to search for his older brother who has been missing for more than a decade. The family had emigrated from Italy to Argentina, but with the great musical success of their father Carlo, an acclaimed symphony conductor, the family moved from Argentina to New York. When Bennie finds his brother, the volatile and melancholy poet Tetro, he is not at all what he expected. In the course of staying with Tetro and his girlfriend Miranda, the two brothers grapple with the haunting experiences of their shared past.

Francis Ford Coppola turned 70 a couple of months ago, but he shows no sign of slowing down. After a frustrating decade with nary a directing credit to his name, now comes «Tetro», which is his second movie in two years and is based on the first original screenplay he has written, directed and produced since «The Conversation» in 1974, Larry Rohter (The New York Times)
