Turturro and Gandolfini Talk ‘Romance & Cigarettes’


Early in John Turturro's film "Romance & Cigarettes," the main character, played by James Gandolfini, exits his ramshackle house after a drag-out fight with his wife.

The actor, evoking the indelible Tony Soprano, looks as though he's about to explode on-screen yet again. Instead, he gracefully descends the porch stairs, breaking wistfully into Engelbert Humperdinck's "Lonely is a Man Without Love" as dancing garbage men surround him.

It's at this moment that audiences realize they're in for something different with "Romance & Cigarettes."

"It takes a little while," says Gandolfini, imagining puzzled audience members. "They're all like dogs going, `Huh?'"
