Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut, Coriolanus, scripted by John Logan, updates one of Shakespeare's more difficult plays without sacrificing the Bard's original dialogue. Set in modern times, the movie starsFiennes as the title character, a fierce General able to fight Rome's most dreaded enemies as well as quell civil unrest from a lack of food. When politicians convince Coriolanus to become a political leader, his natural fierceness and lack of political instincts lead to him being disgraced by other politicians and eventually forced to leave Rome after being branded a traitor. He then joins with his former enemies to invade Rome, and the only person who may be able to talk him out of this revenge plan is his mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

Il restauratore, 2010

Directors: Giorgio Capitani, Salvatore Basile

Writer: Alessandro Jacchia

Starring:  Lando Buzzanca, Paolo Calabresi, Beatrice Fazi

Production: Albatros Entertainment Spa

Production Service Company: Film 87

Locations: Roma Barocca film set

A superannuated radio, an old de-magnetized compass, a tarnished tin soldier, an antique carillon that's jammed. Such objects are the silent witnesses of our lives: they hold stories and contain secrets; but to one man alone, they can warn of future disasters. Basilio has a gift: he can hear those stories, penetrate those mysteries and avert their relative dangers. He has the responsibility of not only restoring those objects, but above all of fixing the soul of persons who, having been seriously wronged, seek justice through vengeance. Their past hides a secret. Their present is not what it could have been. Their future is already in place to overwhelm them in sorrow. Until they meet the Restorer.

 A survivor of the Great Siege of Rochester Castle fights to save his clan from from Celtic raiders. A sequel to the 2011 film, “Ironclad“.

It’s 1216, just one year after the battle at Rochester Castle, and a new enemy threatens English life that’s far more terrifying than King John – bands of Celtic raiders, stealing livestock and killing anyone who gets in their way. After the death of his father at the hands of these raiders, Hubert is determined to defeat them, once and for all. He seeks out his cousin Guy, one of the heroes of Rochester castle, for help. Guy is no longer the naïve idealist he once was, but a hardened sword-for-hire… Hubert finds him in a whorehouse, drunk and disillusioned, and only willing to raise his sword for money.

They return to the castle, but before Hubert, Guy, and the rest of their band finish building up the castle defenses, the raiders strike. Bloody battles and violent deaths follow, including that of the enemy leader’s son. Arriving to find his eldest son dead, the Celtic chieftain vows he will not return home until every living thing within the castle walls is slaughtered – and that’s just the cue for more Ironclad gut-splitting action. The chieftain’s resolve only intensifies the fight, because now the Celts aren’t just fighting for livestock, they’re fighting for revenge.

IRONCLAD: BATTLE FOR BLOOD will take you on a hellacious ride featuring crashing swords, gruesome hand to hand combat, and plenty more of the ultra-violent medieval action that has distinguished this epic series.

Lock out, 2011

Director: James Mather and Stephan St. leger

Writers:  Stephen St. Leger, James Mather

Starring:  Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare

Production: Luc Beson

Production service company: Work in progress

Locations: PFI Studios, Belgrade port

Similar in plot to Escape from New York, Lockout follows the exploits of Marion Snow (Guy Pearce) who must unravel a scheme to frame him for the murder of an undercover agent. If he can prove his innocence, he can avoid imprisonment in a corrupt, dystopian space station prison called MS One where all of the inmates are kept in a state of suspended animation or used for illegal scientific dissection. Agent Snow must track down a mysterious metal briefcase that holds the proof that he has been framed.

Lockout also chronicles the hapless travels of Emilie Warnock, daughter of the US President who flies off to tour the deadly prison in space alongside her team of Secret Service handlers who prove ineffectual when the defrosted inmates attack. Agent Snow is offered a chance to redeem himself from the crime he did not commit if only he agrees to covertly travel to MS One and save the President’s daughter from a cast of psychotic inmates (deftly led by actors Joseph Gilgun and Vincent Regan). As the story unfolds, the hero saves the girl, defeats an army of dangerous criminals, hurtles with her back to earth and then solves the mystery of the missing briefcase. In reward for his outstanding efforts, he is set free and gets the girl.

The Tenor-Lirico Spinto 2013 is a film based on a true story of the life of internationally-acclaimed South Korean tenor, Bae Jae-Chul. The talented vocalist performs in numerous European operas and is on the rise to stardom, penetrating the audience’s hearts through his delicate and powerful singing. Koji Sawada, a Japanese music producer, is searching for a European tenor for an upcoming performance. Upon his search, he watches a performance by Bae Jae-Chul and is amazed by his voice and the fact an Asian can sing better than most Europeans. Sawada invites Jae-Chul to Japan which marks the beginning of a strong partnership and great friendship.
After a successful season of performances, Jae-Chul ends up losing his voice at the peak of his career due to the tragedy of thyroid cancer. During an operation procedure, the doctor realizes that Jae Chul’s vocal cord needs to be cut due to the widely spread cancer. As the doctor informs Yoonee, Jae-Chul’s wife, of the situation, she is faced with the decision between choosing his life or his career. Jae-Chul who was once so passionate and ambitious is left in a state of hopelessness, realizing his dreams are worthless without the beauty of his voice. Sawada can’t stand to watch Jae-Chul fall apart in misery and won’t give up on finding a solution to improve his vocal abilities. After a group effort between family and friends, Sawada is able to find a veteran doctor to perform a specific surgery for vocal cord restoration that could possibly cure Jae-Chul’s voice. Jae-Chul takes the risk and undergoes the operation that saves his life as he regains hope to continue his love for music. Although he is not fully recovered to be the singer he was once before, his efforts of endless rehabilitation leads to the overcoming of the tragic event and an inspiration to the world as he stands up on the stage again as ‘The Tenor’ to perform for the massive audiences.
