[Mis à jour le 24 novembre 2021 à 8h50] In theaters on November 24, 2021, House of Gucci looks back on the murder of the heir to the Italian luxury house, Maurizio Gucci, in 1995. This assassination was ordered by Patrizia Reggiani, his former wife, who wanted to collect his shares before that he does not marry his childhood friend, Paola Franchi. Patrizia Reggiani was sentenced to 29 years in prison for this crime. Ridley scott decided to stage this sulphurous affair in his latest feature film. A choice that has no more to the heiress of the Gucci house.
With the agency Associated Press, Patrizia Gucci (a cousin of Maurizio) lamented, on behalf of her family, that the film crews “steal the identity of an entire family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system”. The latter considers that the book on which the film is based with Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, The House of Gucci: a Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed would not accurately transcribe the events. She also laments the appearance of Aldo and Paolo Gucci, respectively played by Al Pacino and Jared Leto, in the movie: “My grandfather was a very handsome man […] His performer is already not very tall, and this photo shows him big, small, with sideburns, really very ugly. It’s shameful, it doesn’t look like him at all. “
Ridley Scott responds to criticism from Gucci family
Faced with criticism from the family ahead of House of Gucci’s release, Ridley Scott reacted in an interview with the BBC’s “Today” show: “One member of the Gucci family has been murdered, another has gone to prison for tax evasion. So you can’t accuse me of making a profit. As soon as you do these things, you are in the public domain. “
