It is one of the best films in the history of Italian cinema and, The Invitation we could risk saying, in the history of universal cinema. The room, the melancholy, childhood memories, everything that could have been and was not, sexual awakening, life in a town, exile to the city, the search for a dream, the magic of movies, first love, fatherhood, bonds, the passage of time, the tragedy after the war. All this happens in Cinema Paradiso. All this went through our hearts when we saw it for the first time and when we see it again. And again.
Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo) was The Invitation released in 1988, and was written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. It was his second film; he was only 30 years old at the time of conceiving the film. Without a career to support him, Tornatore went with his project under his arm in search of a producer who wanted to bet on his story, which had the cinema itself as its protagonist. He found a producer who knew how to see beyond the inexperience of the director and decided to bet on the film. It was Franco Cristaldi, whom many recognize as the true author of this masterpiece that won an Oscar for best international film.
Cristaldi had worked with The Invitation directors of the stature of Luchino Visconti, Mario Monicelli and Federico Fellini, and was highly recognized and respected in the industry. He was also the mentor of actress Claudia Cardinale (whom he would eventually marry). He won three Oscars: Pietro Germi's Italian Divorce (1961), Fellini's Amarcord (1973), and Cinema Paradiso itself, of course.
With this endorsement, The Invitation Tornatore received Cristaldi's permission and his idea became a project that would finally see the light of day. But this relationship would end in the most tense when, close to the premiere, the director insisted that the final version should be left with two hours and 52 minutes. The producer shouted to the heavens and flatly refused to let the film last so long. Reluctantly, Tornatore agreed to cut much of the film down to two hours and 22 minutes.
Thus, with half an hour The Invitation less, Cinema Paradiso was released on September 11, 1988. The result of the first days was disastrous: nobody went to see it, except in Sicily, where it did have a good reception; in the rest of Italy and in the most relevant points for the box office, such as France or Spain, it was considered just another film from the crowd.
But both Tornatore and Cristaldi did not give up despite being at odds over the length of the film. With spirits on the floor, they took their production to the Cannes Festival and luck changed completely. But the producer continued with the idea of cutting more and more, and was forceful with the director: if they wanted to be in Cannes, they had to present a shorter film. Pressured by the poor result of the first presentations, Tornatore accepted as a smothered blow, and reduced his work to 121 final minutes.
Already in Cannes, she received a standing ovation with The Invitation version proposed by Cristaldi. For seven minutes the audience applauded this film until their hands turned red. Cinema Paradiso won the Grand Jury Prize and managed to get a re-release. The success was immediate and the film was nominated for the Golden Globes, the Bafta and, of course, the Oscar.
The acting career of Alejandro Aguilar from Ibaguere completes two decades, and for many “El Cachi”, his character from “Rosario Tijeras”, persists in memory, it is a benchmark of everything that this artist can do to be very real and convincing in cameras.
Slipping a little through his memories, The Invitation he settles on those beginnings and states that he has had a serious career, and without false modesty he affirms that he has tried to be consistent in a medium where the market is dominated by people created from social networks, believing that being famous and popular is enough, for which he differs, since the profession he chose, strictly implies to get ahead.
Aware that he is doing entertainment and of the disdain that this profession produces in some, he is also thoughtful in stating that in some way the actors become an aspirational profile of new generations and starting from there, he adds that on that path he has faced risks and challenges.
When he played his role in “Rosario Tijeras”, Alejandro had been waiting for ten years, studying and working anonymously on stage, sometimes for very few people. From there many things have happened, but as he himself clarifies, he chose the path of theater and cinema, in a country where they see it as a utopia, however, he defends those independent projects, because from there it can be built country and society.
In that time, 22 films have passed in his life, in addition to acting in several television productions, adding his passage through the platforms with "El Chapo", a great opportunity to show himself in other countries, with a job that is very close to the cinema. in work and aesthetics.
Alejandro declares himself fortunate to have the privilege of making movies, that he knows that this does not happen to all actors, and he is honest again by indicating that this does not make him more popular, but perhaps more professional, therefore he follows betting.
The pasodobles, the bals, the cumbias. The Invitation Gone are the orchestras and charangas, the grandparents sitting on plastic chairs and the children crossing in front of the stage chasing a ball. The traditional image of the municipal booth at village festivals is fading today in exchange for music from the 80s and 90s performed by cover groups. La España Cañí gives way to the Pagan Festival that is set up at each fair held in the province: concerts that start at night, sometimes at dawn, and capacity that exceeds 2,000 and even 3,000 people.
"When we started it was unthinkable to have a rock group in a municipal booth," says Rafa, one of the six founding members of Planeta 80, perhaps the most sought-after cover group in Córdoba. Their beginnings as a band date back to 2008 and, since then, "we haven't had a summer as busy as this," he recalls. In July there have been 22 concerts; on August 28, the same ones they have confirmed for September: "Aaaa exhausting", he jokes.
They share the same feeling from Rockopop, The Invitation another of the most demanded groups in the province. Its vocalist, Raquel, confirms a change in favor since the pandemic: "Fairs bet more on cover groups" and "people are giving everything." After two years of suspensions, there was a bit of fear in case it would happen again, we didn't know how people were going to respond, but the concerts are full, much better than expected, "says the vocalist.
The summer months, the high season of work for these groups, become a spiral of "van, eat, play and sleep", summarizes Rafa, although in his case they try to "have a moderately prudent distance and return home all the days to not sleep on the road". Behind the two-hour concert and that archetypal image of the rock band that travels the map from town to town, "there are many hours of travel, rehearsals, assembly and disassembly," says Raquel. "It also tires the heat, the hours of travel and the few hours of sleep. All that glitters is not gold," she says.
With a legion of followers who guarantee their more than 10 years of experience, The Invitation Planeta 80 and Rockopop -communities of 11,000 and 10,000 people on Facebook, respectively- have earned the license to live from music throughout the year. "Between gambling dens, weddings and fairs, we move well all year round. August is just as strong as May or December. We have not bet on a single horse," declare the Planeta family, from whom six families are fed. In Rockopop they are one more, six musicians and a sound technician.
"We are very happy with what has happened to us. To live from a group of pop-rock songs, to be respected everywhere we go, to be treated with affection and to have 2,000 crazy people get in front of you to listen to you... That's a dream, and on top of that they pay you well for it", recognizes the member of Planeta 80. "That you always want more, yes. But keep in mind that we don't spend time on our own songs. does not exist, and with our age and the years we have been in the business, that is a utopia in which we neither dream nor hope", he accepts.
Over the decades, many great musicals have made it to the big screen. But none as memorable as the 2002 movie Chicago. The film made stars of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger. And introduced fans around the world to songs like "Cell Block Tango" and "Razzle Dazzle." Vibrant, fun and intense, Chicago ranks as one of the great movie musicals. Interestingly, there was once another actor attached to play the role which Zellweger eventually landed. And in an intimate interview with Howard Stern, Charlize Theron opened up about being fired from Chicago.
Charlize Theron attends the 76th Annual The Invitation Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6, 2019 in Beverly Hills, California.Before Chicago debuted in theaters in 2002, there was a stir behind the scenes of the production. As Theron told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show, she was originally signed to play the role of Roxie Hart. The role ultimately went to Zellweger. “I definitely wanted
things that I didn't get. For a while I was attached to Chicago. I really wanted that, I was a dancer most of my life, and there was a real nostalgia, the idea of making that movie for me. I got kicked out," Theron said, as reported by People magazine.
“The management kicked me out of it. I was really upset about it. The Invitation I think because I had it, I was like, 'Oh, I'm going to do this movie,' and then they kicked me out," Theron revealed. A change of directors resulted in her departure from the film. “I was going to play the role of Renée Zellweger who, by the way, did an amazing job. So yeah, I'm very envious of what she did… I've seen that movie a lot,” Theron told Stern, noting that she “fantasized” about being in the movie.
There have been several hot music biopics released in recent years. But few are as talked about as the 2019 movie Rocketeer. Detailing music superstar Elton John's rise to stardom and his personal struggles, the film starred Taron Egerton as John and included a star-studded supporting cast. Rocketeer was a long time in the making. The Invitation It was produced with the support and assistance of John himself. While John was enthusiastic about Egerton's work on the film, the music icon initially had a very different actor in mind to tackle the lead role.
English actor Taron Egerton landed the role of Elton John in Rocketeer. The role came with its fair share of challenges, considering how well-known John is. Although Egerton ended up fully filling the role, he wasn't the first star John had in mind to play him. In a May 2019 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, John's husband and rocketeer producer David Furnish admitted that Justin Timberlake took that spot.
John and Timberlake had worked together before. The Invitation Timberlake starred in the 2001 music video for John's song. This train no longer stops there. "We never formally approached Justin because we were never at a stage where it was the right time to approach him," Furnish said. “But he did an amazing job on the video. He got a prosthetic nose, and it turned out to be a very interesting acting job as well.”
