Day 8 @ 67th Venice International Film Festival


Another day in La Mostra with some interesting films.

In Competition

Attenberg, Athina Rachel Tsangari, Greece (If you watch the trailer you'll notice that has a "little" lesbian interest)
Vénus Noire (Black Venus), Abdellatif Kechiche, France (yes will watch)

Out of Competition
La Prima Volta a Venezia by Antonello Sarno, Italy (collage with eighty-eight memories and secrets about their first time at Venice fest with the likes of Clint Eastwood, Charlize Theron, and many more)
Sorelle Mai by Marco Bellocchio, Italy (could be interesting - filmed from 1999 to 2008 comprises 6 episodes of a single story)
The Town by Ben Affleck, USA (I like Affleck directing, not acting; but probably will watch maybe he can direct himself better)
All Inclusive (3D) by David Zamagni and Nadia Ranocchi, Italy and Austria (the story seems interesting but 3d?)
Zebraman by Takashi Miike, Japan, 2004

News

Yesteday Mani Ratman was honored with the Jaeger leCoultre - Glory to the Filmmaker Award, he received the award for the film Raavan. Unfortunately Aish wasn't there. Today finally got clear the reason why the film has two names. Raavanan is Tamil and Raavan is Hindi and as some us know, there were two versions one in Tamil and another in Hindi; so the longer name really belongs to Tollywood, while the second -the one I saw- to Bollywood.

Most news in any language are about Ben Affleck being there. At Radio Montecarlo there is an interview where he talks about his movie but also about his interest in politics, the title: Dopo Obama... Ben Affleck? (After Obama... Ben Affleck?)
