Bahman Ghobadi’s latest film Rhino Season was a surprise omission from this year’s Cannes programme. Venice could now serve as the launch pad for the acclaimed director’s drama about a couple who are unjustly incarcerated during Iran’s Islamic Revolution.

Bellucci plays Minah, the wife of an incarcerated poet Sahel (Behrouz Vossoughi), who emigrates to Istanbul with her two children after serving a ten-year jail sentence and believing her husband to be dead. Yilmaz Erdogan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) plays the couple’s nemesis.

Multi-hyphenate Ghobadi says his latest work is not strictly a political film: “This film is very different to my previous works. It is a poetic film about an artist whose life was interrupted for thirty years when a person he knew used the political situation at the time to throw him and his wife in prison out of  a deeply-seeded obsession and personal vendetta.”

Ghobadi drew inspiration for Rhino Season from the real life events surrounding a Kurdish poet and family friend who disappeared for thirty years. Presumed dead by his friends and relatives, the man was in fact incarcerated in an Iranian prison.

As we had previously reported, Monica Bellucci is going to Turkey next month, where shootings for Kurdish director Bahman Ghobadi’s Gergedanlar Mevsimi (Rhinos Seasons) are about to begin. Monica is playing the wife of Berhouz Vossoughi (while young actress Beren Saat is playing her daughter), and will reportedly come to ?stanbul between March 5 to 20 for the shootings.

Monica Bellucci herself has confirmed the rumour:

«The movie is set before and after the Iranian revolution. I’m playing an Iranian woman. It is a political movie, but it is first of all about a great love story.»

As for Jagmohan Mundhra’s much anticipated biopic Sonia (a movie about Sonia Gandhi, Monica is rumored to be playing the leading role since 2005), she says:

«I know. But I haven’t received the script yet. Sonia Gandhi is a huge personality and you have to make a movie that respects her. We’ll see.»


Come abbiamo riportato qualche giorno fa, Monica Bellucci sarà in Turchia il mese prossimo, dove inizieranno le riprese di Gergedanlar Mevsimi (L’ epoca dei rinoceronti), del regista curdo e vincitore della Palma d’oro Bahman Ghobadi. Monica interpreterà la moglie di Berhouz Vossoughi (mentre la giovane attrice Beren Saat interpreterà sua figlia), e sarà a Istanbul orientativamente tra il 5 e il 20 marzo per le riprese.

La stessa Monica Bellucci ha confermato la voce:

«Il film è ambientato prima e durante la rivoluzione in Iran. Interpreterò una donna iraniana. E’ un film politico, ma è prima di tutto una grande storia d’amore.»

Per quanto riguarda il film di Jahmohan Mundhra, il chiacchieratissimo Sonia (una biopic su Sonia Gandhi, si vocifera che Monica debba interpretarla fin dal 2005), dice:

«Ho saputo. Ma non ho ancora ricevuto il copione. onia Gandhi è una figura femminile epocale, bisogna realizzare un film che la rispetti, che ne sia all’ altezza. Vedremo.»

According to some rumors, Monica Bellucci will be in Turkey next month, shooting a new movie under the direction of Cannes Film Festival winner Bahman Ghobadi. Turkish actress Beren Saat should be in the movie too.

No further news on this project is available.

Monica is also about to shoot another untitled movie directed by her husband Vincent Cassel in Brazil, and yet another Italian-Turkish movie after the summer, directed by Ferzan Ozpetek. Harem by Fabien Pruvot should be in the works too, but there never was an official announcement about it.


Secondo alcune voci (non ancora confermate) Monica Bellucci sarà in Turchia il mese prossimo, per girare un nuovo film sotto la regia del vincitore del Festival di Cannes Bahman Ghobadi. L’attrice turca Beren Saat dovrebbe essere la co-protagonista.

Non ci sono ulteriori particolari sul progetto.

Monica è anche in procinto di girare un altro film ancora senza titolo diretta dal marito Vincent Cassel, in Brasile, e ancora, un altro film italo-turco dopo l’estate, diretta da Ferzan Ozpetek. Harem di Fabien Pruvot sarebbe in lista anche, ma non c’è mai stata una conferma ufficiale.
