Filmfest 2006

HOTEL revolves around a film shoot in Venice. Led by director Trent Stoken, the cast and crew are working on a Dogme adaptation of John Webster’s Jacobean revenge tragedy “The Duchess of Malfi.” (For what it’s worth, the Dogme manifesto forbids period pieces.) Producer Jonathan Danderfine would rather direct the film himself. When an assassin shoots Trent, landing him in a coma, Jonathan gets his way. Meanwhile, it becomes apparent that the hotel is a hotspot for cannibals, who prey on its guests.
