In our second Artificial Eye competition of the week, and to celebrate the cinematic release of Paolo Sorrentino‘s This Must Be the Place (2011) – which stars Sean Penn and Frances McDormand – on 2 April, we have THREE DVD copies of the 4-disc The Paolo Sorrentino Collection to give away to our loyal readers. Sorrentino is one of the most distinguished and stylish filmmakers to have emerged from Italian cinema in recent years. Acclaimed for his visual flair and sharp editing, this DVD set showcases his best work. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to facebook.com/CineVueUK, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.
Il Divo (2008)
A riveting tale of political intrigue and organised crime, based on the extraordinary and controversial life of former Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti (Toni Servillo), whose long career was dogged by persistent accusations of Mafia underworld connections and state terror.
The Family Friend (2006)
Sorrentino’s effortlessly stylish, blackly comic and suspense-filled drama centres on a sleazy and mis- anthropic small-time loan shark, who becomes obsessed by the stunningly beautiful daughter of one of his clients.
The Consequences of Love (2004)
This tightly plotted, stylishly executed and gripping psychological thriller, probes the dark and terrible secred harboured by a mysterious middle-aged loner (Servillo).
One Man Up (2001)
Sorrentino’s assured debut feature about the dark side of fame charts the fall from grace of two public figures – a rock star and a football hero – who lead separate yet strangely parallel lives.
