71st Venice Film Festival Award Winners


The ceremony is over and the live streaming finished when Roy Andersson went out to the red carpet section to receive people's cheers and photographers craziness. As soon as Rai TV uploads the award ceremony video will embed it at the end of the post.

As far as I was able to read allover the net, not many were expecting Roy Andersson's film to win the Golden Lion as many were expecting The Look of Silence to win to have for the first time two documentaries winning in a row (last year Golden Lion is a documentary). But I'm very glad the Golden Lion went to the third installment of a trilogy that will have a fourth film (lol - is true) and can't wait to watch the 3rd and 4th installments. Sigh. Know Andersson's movies are VERY special and surely an acquired taste but if you love Scandinavian dead pan/coldish/slow-ish fantastic films, then I know you will enjoy Andersson's films.

The HUGE surprise for me comes from finding that Elio Germano did not win la Copa Volpi and that went to an American actor that has done a few independent movies, was NOT there to receive in person the award and should have been there NO matter what as he just had his career go to an upper level.

This year the festival did not excite me as there were not much movies that called my attention and the ones that did were already in my to-watch queue as I see "everything" by those directors. Hope next year La Mostra becomes a much more interesting festival for cinema lovers and public in general.

Addio ci vediamo alla prossima edizione. Ciao.
