The story tells of two brothers, of family lost and found, and the conflicts and tragedies within a highly creative Argentine-Italian family.
Vincent Gallo stars in the title role alongside Maribel Verdu, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Carmen Maura and newcomer Alden Ehrenreich.
'Our families form the basis of our original view of life,' Coppola said. 'I think most people are caught up in issues, experiences and memories of their families - I am no exception. Even though this is a fictional story, I used what I know best, my life'.
The film's official website www.tetro.com launched on February 24 and new content will be added weekly including interviews with Coppola and the cast, as well as footage, stills, cast bios and the trailer.
