Sherlock Gnomes

English Film Festival at the Cinapalace. 

Movies in original language with Italian subtitles.


Sherlock Gnomes is the follow-up to 2011's Gnomeo & Juliet. It introduces the titular detective (voiced by Johnny Depp), the "sworn protector of London's garden gnomes," to the star-crossed lovers from the first film. When nearly all of the city's gnomes go missing, Sherlock and his partner, Watson (Chiwetel Ejiofor), are on the case, with Gnomeo and Juliet (James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) along to help rescue their friends and family. Expect more action and peril than in the original: A few gnomes are injured, maimed, or even smashed by the main villain, characters take part in action-packed chases and pursuits, and there are potentially frightening gargoyles and a stampede of rats. There's also a little romance (not just between Gnomeo and Juliet, but also between supporting characters), including kisses and flirting; one gnome likes to wear a thong swimsuit (putting his buttocks on display), and another sits on the toilet. Language is mostly insult words and a few swear stand-ins ("fudge buckets!") and rude jokes. Families who see the movie together can discuss its themes of teamwork, friendship, and equal partnerships.




The name (in local pronunciation Arcaton) comes from the Greek and Byzantine occupation dated back to the sixth century AD: "Archeion" is the name of a plant, the burr, which still grows spontaneously in some areas of the beach now occupied by the bathing establishments but which was once abundant on the desert shore of Riccione.
