Watch Wes Anderson’s Charming 8 min Short Film: "Castello Cavalcanti" Starring Jason Schwartzman.
Anderson transports us to Castello Cavalcanti in the suitably mid-century year of 1955. The quiet evening scene, exuding that richly Italian feeling falling somewhere between idyll and indolence, splinters apart when a race car crashes into the center of town. Out of the wreck emerges the unscathed but enraged driver — evidently, the steering wheel got screwed on backward — the Italian-American Cavalcanti realizes he may have driven not only straight into his own ancestral village, but into the company of his ancestors themselves. These charming and vividly colorful seven Andersonian minutes come brought to you by Prada."
