In the interim between Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson directed Castello Cavalcanti – a short film for the popular fashion label Prada.
Set in the year 1955, the film narrates the story of Jed Cavalcanti (played by Jason Schwartzman) a Formula one driver whose car gatecrashes into an Italian village during an F1 race. While awaiting a ride to his hometown and sharing a drink with the resident villagers, Jed learns that he has landed into his ancestral hometown named Castello Cavalcanti.
The film is visually enchanting and distinctively Anderson'ian. The delightful work transports you to a bygone era creating an enjoyable experience in the process.
While you are at it, watch Anderson's early short 'Bottle Rocket' that we've written about earlier.
