Good Morning, Babylon Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The always innovative Taviani Brothers pay homage to another unique filmmaker, [[Performer~P92597~D. W. Griffith~dwgriffith]], in Good Morning, Babylon. [[Performer~P67081~Vincent Spano~vincentspano]] and [[Performer~P17614~Joaquim de Almeida~joaquimdealmeida]] star as Nicola and Andrea Bonnano, the latest in a long line of Tuscany-born cathedral builders. Emigrating to America, the brothers settle in Los Angeles in 1915, even as director [[Performer~P28831~Griffith~edgriffith]] ([[Performer~P16791~Charles Dance~charlesdance]]) is preparing his epic production [[Feature~V25152~Intolerance~intolerance]]. The boys are hired to help construct the massive sets for the film's Babylonian sequence (hence the title), for no other reason than the fact that [[Performer~P28831~Griffith~edgriffith]] is impressed by Italian craftsmanship. As the film progresses, Nicola and Andrea assimilate to their new surroundings, even launching a romance with a pair of pretty movie extras. On the verge of continuing the family tradition, the boys' ambitions are cut short by events well beyond their control. Still, their past artistic accomplishments, like those of their forebears, survive the ages -- but only on the ethereal silver screen. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
