Madonna Sets Directorial Debut With

Last week Madonna was doing humanitarian work in NYC for the children of Malawi and this week she’s in Berlin promoting her latest project, Filth an Wisdom.

Don’t worry you won't find this superwoman acting in the film. It’s actually Madonna's directorial debut. Wonder if she's getting any Directing 101 courses from her hubby Guy Ritchiesince she's following in his footsteps.

The comedy/drama/musical/romance starring Richard E. Grant, Eugene Hütz, Stephen Graham, Holly Weston, Vicky McClure, Inder Manocha and Shobu Kapoor will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival today.

The story features a Russian immigrant, ballet school, lap dancing, cultural revolution, poetry, night club, punk rock band, book writer, dominatrix and gypsy.

The Gypsy punk band that appears in the film is portrayed by real-life Gypsy punk band, Gogol Bordello, who also contributed three songs to the film's soundtrack. Hopefully, Madonna will gain acclaim with this film and it won't end up being a flop like Evit or Swept Away.
