Watch: Trailer For Forgotten & Unreleased 2007 Vincent Gallo Sex Comedy 'Oliviero Rising'

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist June 25, 2013 at 12:54PM

With every cinematic oddity that artist/filmmaker Vincent Gallo makes, he seems to pursue a fleeting moment that crumbles after its creation. He's denied films a proper release before, as “Promises Written in Water” turned out to be hidden from the “dark energies from the public” -- but now a new glimpse of a forgotten acting project has emerged, and it's certainly a change from the iconoclast.

Vincent Gallo

With every cinematic oddity that artist/filmmaker Vincent Gallo makes, he seems to pursue a fleeting moment that crumbles after its creation. He's denied films a proper release before, as “Promises Written in Water” turned out to be hidden from the “dark energies from the public” -- but now a new glimpse of a forgotten acting project has emerged, and it's certainly a change from the iconoclast.

Aside from a brief 3-minute clip (in Italian) with actor Clive Riche, little has been seen or heard about the Gallo-starring “Oliviero Rising." It landed briefly on the international festival circuit in 2007, playing small scale places like Monte Carlo Comedy Film Festival and Flaiano Film Festival a year later, before disappearing completely. However, a trailer has landed online that takes a look at its considerable cast, surreal, austere tone, and bawdy plotline.

Directed by Riki Roseo, the film stars Gallo as an Italian-American immigrant who returns to Italy for an inheritance and, once there, faces a “deep, personal crisis” with intimacy. While that may sound like a typical Gallo piece, the trailer showcases a sex comedy vibe filtered through Antonioni, bolstered by a supporting cast of Ernest Borgnine, Burt Young, Vincent Schiavelli, and the unsettling presence of Sage Stallone to kick things off.

No release date yet for the film (and don't hold your breath), but check the trailer and clip out below to gauge whether “Oliviero Rising” should even see the light of day. [via Why Vincent Gallo]
