Tetro is the hauntingly beautiful drama written and directed by five-time Academy Award® winner Francis Ford Coppola (Patton, Original Screenplay, 1970; The Godfather, Adapted Screenplay, 1972; The Godfather: Part II, Best Picture, Directing, Adapted Screenplay, 1974) that critics can’t stop praising. The San Francisco Chronicle called the film “the most beautiful looking movie you’ll see all year.” “It feels good to see Coppola back in form” praised Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, and “there isn’t a frame of this raw and riveting movie that Coppola doesn’t invest with feeling” hailed Rolling Stone.
Starring Vincent Gallo (Buffalo ’66) and set in Argentina, Tetro tells the bittersweet story of two brothers, of family lost and found and the conflicts and secrets within a highly creative Italian immigrant family. The film is Francis Ford Coppola’s first original screenplay since The Conversation, and he has called it his most autobiographical work ever.
The DVD and Blu-ray are packed with extensive bonus features including an audio commentary with Francis Ford Coppola and actor Alden Ehrenreich; an extended version of the Faust play within the movie; as well as featurettes taking viewers behind the scenes of the film’s rehearsal process, taping, cinematography, choreography and music. A work of art from one of the most gifted directors of our time, Tetro is a must have for any film collector. Tetro will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and for digital download on May 4, 2010.
