52nd edition


Fortnight 2009, Feature film, 2h07


Fresh faced and naïve, 17-year-old Bennie arrives in Buenos Aires in search of his older brother who has been missing for more than a decade, and had sworn never to see any of his family again. The family of Italian immigrants settled in Argentina, but with the great musical success of their domineering father Carlo, an acclaimed symphony conductor, moved to New York. When Bennie finds his brother, the brilliant but melancholy writer ‘Tetro,’ he is not welcomed with open arms


Francis Ford Coppola

Born in 1939, Francis Ford Coppola is one of the finest directors alive. He twice won the Best Film Oscar for The Godfather and The Godfather 2 (1972 and 1974), and twice the Palme d’or at Cannes for The Conversation (1974) and Apocalypse Now (1979). In 1969 he and his friend George Lucas created American Zoetrope studios which produced Lucas’s THX 1138 (1971, selected for the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs). He is the father of Sofia and Roman Coppola, both directors.
