Got to watch this with Kurt Walkr, who is now legend thanks to this find, when he initially watched this. How lucky am I? Maria Muller over 3 years ago many thanks Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago Femme Fatale reference? Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago Also, I see tilt-shift lenses, canted angles and all sorts of other interesting developments. 176396 over 3 years ago Yeah, I see that too. Ah… great find, KW. Black Irish over 3 years ago Typical trailer, went and spoiled the whole film for me. ;) But seriously, I have to admit this is an interesting way to market the film. Grand Trunk over 3 years ago Another new trailer: http://vimeo.com/10124349 Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago Thanks, Grand Trunk. That shorter trailer is excellent as well. “Fabrizio del Dongo” is at it again. Question of the hour: is he JLG? Kurt Walker over 3 years ago Fabrizio del Dongo appears to be a character from Stendhal’s “La Chartreuse de Parme” My guess is that it’s JLG. Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago KW, Re: Stendhal. Yeah, that’s what tipped me off. In the translation I have, he’s called Fabrice (as he is in the original French). Though, as he’s Italian, Fabrizio would actually be the right form (and that leads one to suspect Godard even more: he’s done the name-change thing before, see “Louis Beethoven,” which is what Beethoven was called in French during his lifetime). Daniel Kasman over 3 years ago Love that short trailer! User de Faux-Fuyants over 3 years ago Why is this solely called Godard’s film? Aren’t there 6 credited directors aside from him? Grand Trunk over 3 years ago And one of those other directors is Fabrice Aragno. Could he be the mysterious Fabrizio del Dongo?

David Phelps over 3 years ago Fabrice Aragno is also the credited director of the one film Fabrizio likes: http://vimeo.com/5288631. An amateur film, typical film school tricks, but definitely worth watching for the specificity of location, faces, clothes—all of one time and place—as in Godard. Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago User de Faux-Fuyants, Because it’s credited that way in official listings and on the poster. And the credits that appear in Godard films should never be trusted: they are more symbolic than representative of production. In this case, Godard is credited with “logos” alongside many others, including our F. Aragno. David, I watched Autor de Claire, which I liked, but didn’t make the connection. Grand Trunk, Not sure. Aragno has his own Vimeo account; as Phelps pointed out, one of his shorts is one of the only films Fabrizio del Dongo “likes.” Kurt, Hey, our wandering minds want mysterious transmissions. Ignatiy Vishnevetsky over 3 years ago Kurt, Also, thanks for the screen captures. I like the crediting of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov as “R. Korsakov.” Kurt Walker over 3 years ago It also appears like he credits a few films used in his “history of cinema” montages. one of those films credited being “Weekend.” interesting. Kurt Walker over 3 years ago This object/shot seems strangely foreign to a JLG film: http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/9313/vlcsnap2010031823h19m49.png pamelaVITALE over 3 years ago interesting to me… Kurt Walker over 3 years ago Fabrizio’s youtube account closed down. Bizarre. Daniel Kasman over 3 years ago Here is another short trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGW9rt3IAYQ Daniel Kasman over 3 years ago Thanks for the head’s up Kurt, a new account, BadLieutenantD, has these up. Adam J. over 3 years ago I’m pretty sure that’s punk goddess Patti Smith at :53… Namita Nair over 3 years ago when IS IT getting released? too excited!!
