We are big fans of Michael Caine here at FemaleFirst and he is set to return to the big screen at the end of the month with new film Youth.
Youth sees Caine team up with filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino for the first time as he returns to the director's chair for his first full-length feature since The Great Beauty.
Sorrentino has brought us movies like This Must Be the Place during his career and has penned the screenplay for Youth, as well as being in the director's chair.
We are edging closer to the release of Youth and here are a couple of great new clips to whet your appetite. Check them out:
Caine takes on the central role of retired orchestra conductor Fred Ballinger and is joined on the cast list by Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Jane Fonda, and Paul Dano.
Springtime. Fred (Caine) and Mick (Keitel), two old friends now approaching eighty, are on vacation together in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. The two friends know that their time is quickly running out, and they decide to face their future together.
They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests, all of whom, it seems, have all the time that they lack. And while Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred, who gave up his musical career long ago, has no intention of returning to it. But someone wants at all costs to hear his compositions and to see him conduct again.
Youth is a movie that has already won over critics and audiences on the festival circuit and it is always a real treat to see Caine in action.
Youth is released 29th January.
