Wes Anderson retrospectief

The countdown has begun, as Wes Anderson’s latest film Astroid City premieres on June 22. In the run-up to this, Cinecitta will show films by this director for six weeks in a row. Would you like to get acquainted with the world of Wes Anderson – where absurdism, symmetry, misfits and eternal youth are central – or have you always wanted to watch his films on silverscreen? We will show Moonrise Kingdom, Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel,  Fantastic Mr. Fox, Darjeeling Limits and The French Dispatch!

Moonrise Kingdom

When teenagers Sam and Suzy run away from home in the summer of 1965, the normally quiet island on the American east coast is in turmoil. Everyone is mobilized to track down the two: from the local Boy Scouts to which Sam belongs  led by hopman Ward (Edward Norton) to the sullen Sheriff Sharp (Bruce Willis) who has a secret affair with Suzy’s mother (Frances McDormand). A threatening storm and the arrival of the strict youth care worker (Tilda Swinton) put events on edge.



Isle of Dogs

Japan in the near future, there is an outbreak of dog attacks underway. As a result, a corrupt mayor decides to banish all dogs to the garbage island, Trash Island. Twelve-year-old Atari Kobayashi travels to this place in search of his pet Spots and comes into contact with a mob led by Rex. Together they undertake an epic journey that will determine the future of the entire area.



The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel tells the story of a legendary hotel manager (Ralph Fiennes) of a famous European hotel. In between wars, he befriends a young associate (Tony Revolori) who becomes a confidant of his. The story revolves around the theft of a priceless Renaissance painting, the struggle for a huge family fortune and the upheavals that transformed Europe in the first half of the 20th century.




The French Dispatch

A group of journalists hangs out at an outpost in a French city in the twentieth century. The reporters work there for the American daily newspaper ‘The French Dispatch’. When the editor-in-chief dies, they decide to remember him by publishing three stories that have already been published. The first concerns an artist who receives a life sentence for committing two murders, the second tells about student riots and the last is about a kidnapping that, with the help of a chef, has come to a successful conclusion.



The Darjeeling Limited

Three brothers come together because of the death of their father. But then their mother disappears, the brothers decide to go looking for her. The search takes them to the most inhospitable places and obliges them to cross India by train. Their search soon turns into chaos – partly due to Indian cough syrup. The Darjeeling Limited is a typical Wes Anderson film with a lot of absurdism and inky humor.




Fantastic Mr. Fox

Mr. Fox and Mrs. Fox lead an idyllic underground life. To get food, Mr. Fox robs the farms of three different farmers. Mr. Fox always outsmarts the three stupid farmers, but when they are robbed for the umpteenth time, they get together and forge a plan. They want to get rid of the “fantastic Mr. Fox” for good. But Mr. Fox doesn’t stop there. Together with Badger, Rabbit and Weasel, among others, he forges a plan to strike back hard.  Based on the children’s book of the same name by Roald Dahl.
