“Sophisticated” or “empty shell”: Paolo Sorrentino’s new film “Parthenope” divides the press in Cannes.

The Cannes competition continues with the presentation of Italian Paolo Sorrentino’s new film, Parthenope, in which, among others, Gary Oldman takes part. This drama follows the heroine’s search for happiness in 1950s Naples, her love for the city at first sight, and her encounters with many memorable characters.

On the Croisette, the Parthenope received a nine-minute standing ovation, and actress Celeste Dalla Porta, who was considered a revelation, was particularly applauded. This film is Paolo Sorrentino’s seventh feature film to be presented at Cannes.

Some pictures from the May 21 Cannes presentation:

What do festival participants think?

Parthenope is exquisite, one of the best films in the competition. Paolo Sorrentino combines Naples at its most summery and lively and a young woman’s (seductive Celeste Dalla Porta) search for herself in a treatise on cinematic beauty..”

Paolo Sorrentino returns with a wildly lavish film that blurs the lines between the sacred and the profane until sex looks like religion and religion looks like sex.”

Parthenope, soon in the cinema.

The 77th Cannes Film Festival will be held from May 14 to 25, 2024.
