Just when you thought you would have a break from all the festival announcements -- with Venice and Toronto locked in and New York solidifying their main program -- from across the ocean, the BFI London Film Festival is beginning to unveil what they will showcase for cinemaphiles in the U.K.

This morning organizers announced that Fernando Meirelles' "360" will make its European premiere as the official opening film. Starring Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster, the red carpet will be stacked with star power for the presentation of the erotic drama. Penned by Peter Morgan, the film is a retelling of the classic Arthur Schnitzler play “Reigen” that will chronicle the simple decision by one man to remain faithful to his wife and how it creates a ripple effect on various people worldwide, opening a window into modern relationships. It's a intriguing conceit, and definitely one we're curious to see unfold; it's certainly a different take on the multi-thread drama.

"360" makes its world premiere in Toronto next month and as of yet is without a distributor or release date. The BFI London Film Festival runs from October 12-27. Check out the synopsis below.

360 is a modern and stylish kaleidoscope of interconnected love and relationships linking characters from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of romantic life in the 21st century. Starting in Vienna, the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix into a single, mesmerising narrative.

From a simple decision made by one man – to remain faithful to his wife – springs a series of consequences. From uplifting, beautiful and romantic moments through to desperate, confused and conflicted interludes, each protagonist in 360 has their own vivid, entertaining, funny, tragic narrative as their stories entwine across the globe.
