THE FRENCH DISPATCH

3/10/2021, 21:00, DANAOS

Frances McDormand,Timothée Chalamet,Tilda Swinton,Benicio Del Toro, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe are just some of the stars of this year’s most impressive film cast. Keenly involved in Wes Anderson's brand new film, which is inspired by the racy tales told in the pages of a sophisticated magazine from old times which is published in a fictional town of France. A never-ending pool of ideas and references, a genuine directorial extravaganza, a film overflowing with craftsmanship or whatever one would expect from the kooky imagination of the creator of "The Grand Budapest Hotel".




USA | 2021 | COLOR | DCP | 103’ | ENGLISH

A playful love letter to the invaluable legacy of another era’s sophisticated journalism and the high profile publications that have been serving it for decades, the new film by the perfectionist director of ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ draws inspiration from the restless reporters and the veteran mastermind of a fictional magazine, published since the beginning of the 20th century in an imaginary small town in France. Divided into frantic episodes, each one inspired from a different magazine article, Anderson’s architectonic miracle of a film is a wonderful visit of beloved actors in piquant roles while at the same time an epic comic vision, executed on screen with abundant skill and phantasmagoric spirit. L.K.
