Extractions: A little over a month ago I did something that Id only dreamed about since moving to Los Angeles I got to ask Francis Ford Coppola some questions at the press day for his new movie Youth Without Youth. After all, this is a man whos made a number of movies that are revered by millions of film lovers worldwide. From The Godfather to Apocalypse Now, or from The Outsiders to Dracula, hes made films that mean a great deal to a lot of people myself included. So when I got the invite to participate in a roundtable interview with one of the legends of cinema I cleared my previous commitments and got to the hotel quite early. And I wasnt alone as a number of the other journalists in the room were just as excited, as Mr. Coppola hasnt done a press day in many, many years. He was doing press for You Without Youth, his first film in ten years. The film stars Tim Roth as Dominic Matei, an aging professor of linguistics who survives a cataclysmic event to find his youth miraculously restored. Dominic's physical rejuvenation is matched by a highly evolved intellect, which attracts the attention of Nazi scientists, forcing him into exile. While on the run, he reunites with his lost love, Laura (Alexandra Maria Lara), and works to complete his research into the origins of human language. When his research threatens Lauras well being, Dominic is forced to choose between his lifes work and the great love of his life.
Extractions: @import url(/media/style.css); At age 65, Francis Ford Coppola is an elder statesman of American film, a notably successful producer of other people's movies (including those of his daughter, Sofia ), and a pretty damn good vintner to boot. For the last decade, however, he has made no movies of his own. With Youth Without Youth , an idiosyncratic production shot on the fly in Romania, Coppola finally breaks this cinematic silence. In early December, he sat down to discuss the new film with James Marcus, who was himself aided and abetted by the Propeller community. The conversation began with a question about the genesis of Youth Without Youth , which is loosely based on a novella by the Romanian philosopher and religious scholar Mircea Eliade Coppola : It turns out that Eliade used to write these little fablesmaybe for fun, maybe to play around with some of the ideas that were derived from his studies. And when I first read Youth Without Youth , it was like a Twilight Zone thing. Every two pages, something extraordinary would happen to this man. He's hit by lightning. When he wakes up, it turns out that he's young again, and also smarter. Then he turns into two personalities, and one seems to be sending messages about the future of the human species. I said to myself, this is the craziest story I ever read! And I started to become really excited about it: I could make this movie, I could go to Romania. Just bring a crew there, not spend a lot of money.
