Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #98. Liliana Cavani’s L’ordine del tempo

L’ordine del tempo

On our list we have a quartet of filmmakers who returned to the director’s chair after at least a decade away and who’ll present something fresh in ’23. Among them we find Italy’s Liliana Cavani (The Night Porter, The Skin, Ripley’s Game)who returns after more than two decades away from the game and this one appears to be a fun end of times drama. Alessandro Gassmann, Claudia Gerini and Angela Molina joined L’ordine del tempo – which was shot in Rome this past August. This is about a group of friends who gather who gather annually but on this occasion there is an hourglass spoiling the occasion. The 92 year-old filmmaker will get an invite to the Venice Film Festival next year – and possibly unspoil in the competition for the Golden Lion.

Gist: Based on physicist Carlo Rovelli’s novel who also collaborated on the screenplay written by Cavani and Paolo Costella, this explores what happens to a group of long-term friends one night when, during their annual get-together to celebrate a birthday in a villa by the sea, they discover that the world might be ending within the space of a few hours. From that moment on, the time separating them from the possible end of their lives seems to flow differently, both speedily and never-endingly, over a summer’s night which will change their lives forever.

Release Date/Prediction: This might be a Golden Lion contender in Venice this year.
