Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee

by Michael Glover


SYNOPSIS MR. RUDOLPHO’S JUBILEE is the 6th feature film from the independent movie & music team, Bright Blue Gorilla (writer/director Michael Glover and producer Robyn Rosenkrantz). It’s a surreal comedy romance, told by two “Musical Angels”, aka Bright Blue Gorilla as the Greek Chorus. Part screwball comedy, part Bohemian musical, with a pinch of cop-show thrown in for flavor, Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee deliciously mixes up form and mashes up genre. Mr. Rudolpho is an Italian fashion designer. Rich, famous, and depressed. Surrounded by the luxury of his Tuscan villa, monitored 24/7 by a security team and reviled by the CEO of Rudolpho Inc., he’s become a prisoner of success. Rudolpho’s been sketching something in his moleskin book for months, but nobody knows what it is. Turns out he’s making plans for suicide. Good timing, because the CEO is planning to bump him off. (Dead icons are profitable, just ask Chanel or Gucci.) Rudolpho heads to Berlin for Fashion Week to do himself in, with the killers not far behind. But, this being a Bright Blue Gorilla film, things don’t always go as planned... Through a series of events he is thrown in with some off-the-grid artists - the Boheems - who have no idea who he is. Thinking he’s destitute, they invite him to stay. Meanwhile, cops, killers, reporters, and Interpol all search for him. Rudolpho, happy in his hide-out, is hanging with the Boheems - and maybe falling for one of them..
