VENICE, Italy (AP) – Timothée Chalamet felt cut off from the world in the early days of the pandemic. Then Luca Guadagnino, whom Chalamet saw as a father character, arrived when they filmed Call Me By Your Name (“Call Me By Your Name”), and presented him with a new project. It would be another young romantic movie that was also slated to be shown in the ’80s, but instead of Italy, they went to Central America. The lovers will be cannibals.
“Bones and All” screened Friday at the Venice Film Festival, where it is considered one of the titles in the competition. Chalamet and Guadagnino met before the premiere to chat about the movie with the other cast members.
It’s an act that departs from the director’s previous work on films such as “A Bigger Splash” (“Blinded by the sun”) and “I Am Love” (“I am love”), becoming the first Guadagnino owned film shot in America, something he said. He wants to do for a while. His longtime assistant, screenwriter David Kaganich, came to him with an adaptation of Camille de Angelis’ YA novel “Bones and All” and saw in it an opportunity to make a film about identity and marginalized people.
