A FILM ABOUT A MUSIC ICON THAT MOVES “BODY AND SOUL” premiered in the Out of Competition Section at the 77th Venice International Film Festival 2020
Music, exclusive interviews, unreleased material: a fascinating story full of irony and emotion, featuring interviews with Roberto Benigni, Vinicio Capossela, Caterina Caselli, Francesco De Gregori, Stefano Bollani, Giorgio Conte, Pupi Avati, Luisa Ranieri, Luca Zingaretti, Renzo Arbore, Paolo Jannacci, Peppe Servillo, Vincenzo Mollica, Isabella Rossellini, Guido Harari, Cristiano Godano, Giovanni Veronesi, Lorenzo Jovanotti, Jane Birkin, Patrice Leconte
Paolo Conte has been compared to Tom Waits and Randy Newman by the New York Times.
Paolo Conte, Via con me (It’s Wonderful) forms an ideal itinerary with Luca Zingaretti as narrator telling the story of an eclectic and, in some ways, mysterious character. It is a great story, and not just about music, where words and verses as well as the music, interweave and take pictures of our imagination through this great artist’s songs, concerts and friends, as well as his thoughts and reflections.
