The recent films of Francis Ford Coppola will be screened at JIFF this year following the inclusion of Youth without Youth in the 9th JIFF. After suddenly jetting off to Buenos Aires, and inciting a lot of curious interest about the subject for his new film, Coppola chose to return to familiar ground by focusing again on the family. At the heart of this drama is the conflict between a son Tetro, who dreams of being a writer, and his disapproving father Carlo. The film begins with a visit by Tetro’s brother, Bennie, who has come to edit Tetro’s nearly finished play. The play is eventually admitted to the Patagonia Festival, but just before the opening ceremony, they learn of their father’s death. For Tetro, after a sticky relationship of confrontation and resentment, his father’s death begins to unravel new threads of tragedy and family secrets. The film is beautifully shot in beautiful black and white by Mihai Malaimare Jr. with an impressive score by Osvaldo Golijov.
