Here's an exclusive clip from Bernardo Bertolucci's "Me and You" ("Io e Te"), which will make its world premiere in the Cannes Film Festival as an out-of-competition official selection May 23. It's Bertolucci's first film in nearly 10 years ("The Dreamers") and his first Italian-language film since "Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man" in 1981. David Bowie also goes Italian in the film with "Ragazzo Solo, Ragazza Sola" ("Lonely Boy, Lonely Girl") -- singing the Italian version of "Space Oddity." As for the plot, it's the story of 14-year-old Lorenzo, a loner who's not above jettisoning a school ski trip to spend a week hiding in his apartment building’s cellar. But then he's visited by his older half-sister, Olivia, who changes everything. Their emotional time together will inspire Lorenzo to see the world through new eyes. It's based on the best-selling Italian novel by Niccolo Ammaniti. HanWay's selling the film; no US buyer yet.
