Filmfest 2010

TETRO is Francis Ford Coppola's first original screenplay since THE CONVERSATION. It is his most personal film yet, arising from memories and emotions from his early life, though totally fictional. It is the bittersweet story of two brothers, of family lost and found and the conflicts and secrets within a highly creative Argentine-Italian family. Francis Ford Coppola’s TETRO is the type of film so unashamedly decadent, so blissfully all-consuming in its aesthetic prowess that you’re almost willing to forgive its egregious shortcomings - almost. I will say this: TETRO isn’t perfect, but it sure as hell is alive. And in the midst of this year’s overwhelmingly humdrum American releases, alive might as well be perfect.
