This trailer is reminiscent of the sexy jazz-scored European films of the 50s and 60s, like Elevator to the Gallows. It instantly wafts over you with an air of ‘don’t you wish you lived here’ with waves crashing against the Neapolitan shore and sounds of saxophones. The art of the tailor in Italy is a storied one and this documentary chronicles its rich past – we found the trailer on Canadian blog Inquiring Minds. Here’s what they had to say about it:
This documentary has delicate yet assured sophistication written all over it. From Kid Dandy, O’MAST is a documentary film based in the Naples focused on the Neopolitan tailoring traditions. In those traditions the film highlights the Neopolitan’s perspective on culture, the concept of time with a subtle hint of the architecture, that can all intrinsically be found in the structure, design and stitch of a suit. Sound crazy? Watch the trailer, the aforementioned elements fit nicely.
