As the man behind such films as "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker" and "Malena," there was an era when Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore was a familiar name at the arthouse. However, it has been a while since he's had a movie arrive stateside with quite the same attention as those pics, but "The Best Offer" could change that.

The Best Offer

As the man behind such films as "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker" and "Malena," there was an era when Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore was a familiar name at the arthouse. However, it has been a while since he's had a movie arrive stateside with quite the same attention as those pics, but "The Best Offer" could change that.

Featuring his "starriest" cast in quite some time, the film features Geoffrey Rush, Donald Sutherland and Jim Sturgess, in the tale of an eccentric art expert who is invited by a mysterious woman to assess a piece, and it's a journey that will change his life forever. This new teaser trailer for the movie is in Italian, but you can still get a sense of the story, but most of all, you can drink in Tornatore's typically gorgeous widescreen compositions. Seriously, this thing looks pretty great.

Also featuring a score by Ennio Morricone, the film opens in Italy on January 3rd but no dates on this side of the ocean, or distribution for that matter. But hopefully someone will step up?
