Mozart In The Jungle season4 dials up the extravagance in Japan / MetroUK

Bookmark and Share

Amazon's Mozart In The Jungle might be one of the most bizarre concoctions on the platform; a comedy-drama which blends classical music, zany humour with a light-hearted romantic touch. Starring Golden Globe-winning Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal as flamboyant conductor Rodrigo De Souza, the show is inspired by oboist Blair Tindall's 2005 drug and sex-fuelled memoir – and features a superb supporting cast including Lola Kirke, Bernadette Peters and English actor Malcolm McDowell. As the show has progressed over three seasons, it's become even more experimental; delving into Rodrigo's hallucinations and even spinning into documentary territory in episode Not Yet Titled. The fourth season is dialling up the extravagance by partly shifting the setting to Japan, which Gael Garcia Bernal and Malcolm McDowell found to be an overwhelming experience.    (Picture: Amazon)
