TOMMASO

Abel Ferrara | Italy | 2019 | 115 min.
O.V in Italian and English subtitled in English and Spanish

If Willem Dafoe's face was already the canvas on which Abel Ferrara painted Pasolini's portrait in his last days, in Tommaso it serves to outline his possible self-portrait through the story of an Italian-American film director, who lives in Rome with his young wife and his three-year-old daughter (Ferrara's in real life). He navigates confusingly through life in a film that is both self-exorcism, therapy and nightmare, and that leads us through the humor, personal demons, past addictions, reality and the daydreams of a man who directed King of New York and The Funeral, and who seems to want to add Tommaso to his list of cult works.
