Wilde Salome

Pacino takes us on a journey as he unravels and re-interprets Oscar Wilde’s once banned and most controversial work SALOME, a scintillating tale of lust, greed and one woman’s scorn. Pacino uses an uncanny mix of documentary, fiction and improvisation to get to the root of SALOME. SALOME promises to be a profound vision of religion, politics, violence and sexuality from one of the greatest artists of our time. [Synopsis courtesy of MyFilm]
