Wanted Cinema has announced the release in Italian cinemas of Coma, the film directed by Bertrand Bonello made with mixed techniques: let’s find out all the details together in this dedicated article
Wanted Cinema brings the film Coma to Italian theaters only on 3, 4 and 5 July, directed by cult French director Bertrand Bonello (Zombie Child, Saint Laurent). Using a series of mixed techniques, from live action to cartoons to 3D animation, the author immerses himself in the imagination of an eighteen year old, transporting the viewer into a fascinating dimension on the border between dream and reality. The film gradually becomes a visionary fresco of the girl’s fantasies and fears, confined to the space of her room during a pandemic.
How it arrives in Italian cinemas: the director’s statement!
Access to the “other” world is allowed thanks to the videos of Patricia Coma, youtuber that the protagonist begins to follow remaining more and more influenced. The director said:
How to talk to an eighteen year old nowadays? The film doesn’t answer that question, of course, but it does offer some perspectives on it. I wanted to address serious and important issues but also do it in a playful, even humorous and light-hearted way, although the film is permeated with the gloom of the current period. Some expedients of the production, such as the animation in Patricia Coma’s channel, allowed me to make the film in a very free way, alternating comedy, irony and more frightening elements.
Bonello’s imagery returns to intrigue his admirers, with surprising visual inventions and an always strong and direct emotional impact, drawing the viewer into the frame and into the mind of his heroine. The journey is framed in a touching letter to his daughter Anna, which opens and closes the film. On the suspended coming of age, in forced pause, of a teenager in lockdown (Louise Labèque, rediscovered after Zombi Child of 2019) the videocalls open as pop-ups, the Zoom chats with debates on serial killers, the videos of the enigmatic youtuber interpreted by Julia Faure and mysterious shots of surveillance cameras, in a continuous alternation between dream and probable and between different visual formats. Coma had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival 2022, where it won the Fipresci award in the Encounters section, and was present at the fortieth Turin Film Festival 2022.
Coma therefore arrives in Italian cinemas on 3, 4 and 5 July thanks to Wanted Cinema. Let us know if you’re going to see it below in the comments and stay tuned with us at TechGameWorld.com for all the news on the subject of cinema and TV series!
