63. Festival del Cinema di CANNES (12-23 Maggio 2010) - LO SQUALO WALL STREET E' PIU' BUONO. Il regista OLIVER STONE, su finanza: 'vorrei riforme serie' - WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS by OLIVER STONE Screened tonight at 19:30 pm Out of Competition.
- (ANSA) - CANNES, 14 Maggio - La Wall Street (WALL STREET: IL DENARO NON DORME MAI) di OLIVER STONE e MICHAEL DOUGLAS e' la grande protagonista, fuori concorso, della terza giornata del Festival di Cannes.
Ma se il perfido insider Gordon Gekko alla fine perde qualche artiglio di troppo e concede l'happy end, il capitalismo descritto nel film e' ancora piu' cattivo di quello del prequel del 1987.
"Non so se il sistema avra' il potere in se' di correggere gli errori fatti fin qua. Di certo vorrei vedere riforme piu' serie in America" commenta STONE.
WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS by OLIVER STONE
OLIVER STONE Screened tonight at 19:30 pm Out of Competition, WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS by OLIVER STONE is the follow-up to WALL STREET, which came out in 1987. Once again MICHAEL DOUGLAS plays the role of Machiavellian Gordon Gekko. Just out of a 20-year spell in prison, Gekko helps young trader Jacob Moore – played by SHIA LABEOUF - to avenge his mentor who was pushed to commit suicide because of some obscure financial transactions. The film crew will be attending the screening of the feature film at the Grand Théâtre Lumière, with OLIVER STONE, who will be at the Festival for the fourth time.
If the first WALL STREET was a huge hit, it is thanks to the character of Gordon Gekko. So much so that even today, there are people fascinated with this character in the world of traders, who see him as a charismatic embodiment of what they are. Some quotes from the film, such as "Greed is good" and "Money never sleeps" have a cult following in the profession. "It is unbelievable how many people have come to see me over the years to tell me it was my film that made them want to work on Wall Street" says a surprised Oliver Stone, who wanted his feature film to be a moral tale about the excesses of the financial world. In this follow-up, the director tries to show the upheavals this world has undergone over the past 20 years, on the backdrop of the global financial crisis of 2008.
