Nanni Moretti’s Il sol dell’avvenire – 2023 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 8

Nanni Moretti’s Il sol dell’avvenire – 2023 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 8

Palme d’Or winner (The Son’s Room in 2001) Nanni Moretti makes another trip to the competition with an ode to cinema (and Martin Scorsese’s inbox) with Il sol dell’avvenire (aka A Brighter Tomorrow). Once again inviting Margherita Buy to be part of what is an endless supply of young, new and old actors (you’ll find some surprises), this is a triumphant return to the comp especially after Three Floors being one of the worst titles feature there in 2021.

A film director unhappy with the movie he’s shooting about a Hungarian circus stranded in Rome during the 1956 anti-Soviet uprising faces divorce from his producer wife.

Current temp: A likeable film that did irritate some but pleased others, of the fifteen critics who weighed in we have an average score of 2.8 — so it’s near impossible that the Italian filmmaker walks away with a second Palme.
