A life dripping in world travel whilst growing up on the fabled George Cukor estate does not make one a star; however it will provide an awe-inspiring backdrop for Mont Reve, produced by writer/novelist India Irving in symbiotic conjunction with acting beau Mario Rivelli. The dynamic duet is making their way to the top of the class in another school – Hollywood. Founding Cosa Nostra Productions, triumph has come due to the internationally scholastic approach to film; a combinational take on international entertainment projects in favor of highlighting the most celebrated components of world culture.
A riveting sociological pop film, Mont Reve centralizes on Mario Rivelli as Marco della Riva - an Italian of wealthy lineage skipping a beat to rest on his perfect tousled brunette tresses as he gravitates to the front of the fields and back of class functionally maintaining his academy secular jock identity. Renowned Swiss boarding school Mont Reve is for the most prominent, internationally privileged youth; sent to secure their place in academia’s social arena.
Most notable arraignment of talent is Lynn von Kersting who produced and co-directed the film with Rocky Collins, graduate of USC Film School. Panning lenses synchronized with sweeping transitions combine a script of merit with cinematography of similar aptitude. Regardless of screen colloquialism, the all encompassing score featuring music by George Michael, Sting, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Otis Redding, Boyz II Men, Jamie Foxx, The Pointer Sisters, Pino Daniele, Corneille, Etta James, and Neri Per Caso makes the film cult classic material.
Stereotypes are written, lines are drawn, and Cose Nostre Productions casts its first stone, skipping across the pond of successful film endeavors. Quickly picking up momentum from a 15 minute short to full length feature, premiere at Hollywood’s 2012 IFQ Film Festival to a sold-out spectacle won coveted first place with award presented by director and founder Pascal Vicedomini. A vernacular was set for Rivelli/Irving – one of success. Entertainment 7 promptly financed international distribution, shuttling their film to Cannes Film Festival.
