Plot & Details
The principal production of youth started late in spring 2014 in Switzerland where according to he movie’s plot develop all events. Some shots were taken in Venice and Rome as well, so, we can expect to enjoy wonderful scenery of this part of Europe.
Although the movie got pretty diverse responses from those who already watched it in Cannes, in general estimation Youth got 78 points out of total 100 on Metacritic, thus showing generally rather favorable reviews. This winter we all will be able to make our own estimations as to the new Sorrentino’s life story.
Youth has been at once called Sorrentino’s most tender movie so far. It’s an attempt to show deep contemplation of wisdom of life that is very rich in emotions. The wisdom has been gained with years, but then lost and remembered. It doesn’t sound as the major motif of narration, however, but sooner as a wearied chord.
Youth is considered by critics less flashy compared to other recent works of Sorrentino, but it’s undoubtedly not less beautiful. The movie was shot in English language, and rumors have it Youth has all chances to become the biggest box office hit of Sorrentino so far.
Two magnificent outstanding actors, Harvey Keitel and Michael Caine, really did their best in bringing amazing profoundness into their leading roles.
The storyline of Youth develops around two old friends, both pretty gifted men, Mick and Fred, who meet on their holidays at the foot of magnificent Alps in a cozy and elegant hotel. Fred is conductor and really gifted composer who is already retired and enjoys his rest while Mick is a successful film director who still works.
They are having great time and both feel enthusiastic about spending time together and sharing their memories. Mick tries to finish his last movie screenplay and Fred just relaxes, having absolutely no intention to prolong his career in music. But there is someone who is eager to make him conduct again at all costs. And Fred would like to refuse if not that someone being Queen Elizabeth II.
