I Dig Your Eyes: Big World Pictures Arrests Giacomo Abbruzzese’s “Disco Boy”

Finally, it is Big World Pictures that have landed one of the best films from the 2023 edition of the Berlinale. Featuring Franz Rogowski, a winner at the festival (Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution: cinematography) Giacomo Abbruzzese’s Disco Boy (per Deadline) is set to be launched in 2024 but will have some U.S fall film festival showings. Our Nicholas Bell was a fan of the film:

Franz Rogowski headlines with another fascinating, internalized performance as a Belarusian refugee who has to sell his soul for the chance at a better life. Expectedly, the situation waxes Biblical, for even if he gains the world, what does it matter if it means losing his soul? Aided by some broody camerawork by the exceptional Hélène Louvart and original music from French electronic producer Vitalic, the end product is a visually striking, thematically eloquent piece of filmmaking.”
