The Venice Film Festival menu for Julianne Moore and Mariano Cohn

How many movies do you, the reader, usually watch per day? Mariano CohnDirector of the distinguished citizen and from the series Any, with Luis Brandoni and Robert De Niro, this Saturday had to see three. And to the thread. And surrounded by other members of the Jury, and the public, in the Sala Grande at the Palazzo del Cinema, on the Lido in Venice.

And maybe, as it happened to me, he didn’t have such a good time. Not so much because of the quantity, but – let’s not say the quality, because it would not be fair – because none of the three productions has much to dive into, to look for when it comes to fishing for a performance, a script, something to rescue in the ceremony of award ceremony on Saturday, September 10.

As if it were a menu, we can talk about a starter, a main course and a dessert that the Mostra served the Jury this Friday.

a couple marks a contradiction. At least, with what you see. Of the couple referred to in the title, only one person is seen throughout the film. It is Sofía Andréyevna Tolstáya, the wife of Leo Tolstoy, who in Frederick Wiseman’s film does not stop for a second to complain about the author of The war and the peace Y Anna Karenina.

The film, which competes for the Golden Lion, is the shortest of all (63 minutes) and is like a mixture of a soliloquy and a monologue -which is not the same- by Sofía. And everything Sofía says was taken from the correspondence that the couple had. Although they lived under the same roof, they wrote letters to each other. And each one also had a diary.

Mother of her thirteen children, none of them appear on the screen either, but there is talk of the difficult relationship between the spouses. She says that she has assumed that his work is more important, but she reproaches him for never doing anything to help her. She didn’t even take care of the kids.

Everything is laced with images of what surrounds the house in the middle of nowhere. Trees, toads, water -stagnant or not-. More toads. The script is from the actress who does this solo, Nathalie Boutefeu.

Wiseman, 92, the winner of an honorary Oscar and three Emmys, began production on his documentary two months after his wife of 66 years, Zipporah Batshaw, died.

The main course

It’s clearly Bones and Allbecause it has an Italian director (Luca Guadagnino) and a young Hollywood star (Timothee Chalamet) and because the director and actor together made the Oscar nominee call me by your name (2017), the film that really launched the career of both. And there is already talk of a sequel.

The film grabs you in the first five minutes. I’m not going to spoil anything at all, when the film only premieres in November. Until then, Mara (Taylor Russell) is a teenager who goes to high school and plans to escape to the night of the sucucho where she lives with her father, to go to a classmate’s house and “make more friends”.

Why wouldn’t the father let her go? Hey?

She escapes through the window, arrives at the house, they are lying on a rug, under a glass table and Mara puts her friend’s finger in her mouth.

Born in Palermo, Guadagnino is remembered, we said, for call me by your namebut really at this point we should say that it seduces him, maybe, maybe, in one of those, plus the weather and what the remake of Suspiriahis subsequent film.

For With bones and allfeatured actors who had previously worked with him, such as Chloé Sevigny and Jessica Parker herself (A Ghost in Paradise), and Mark Rylance (bridge of spies), no, and of course, Chalamet, whose role I will not reveal.

About the actor (high black boots, higher socks and shorts) who now regrets having worked with Woody Allen so much, starring in A rainy day in New Yorktook advantage of the press conference that the plot of Bones and All It takes place in the ’80s, when there were no social networks, to attack them.

“Being young now, although I can only speak for my generation, is being judged intensely”, started the protagonist of Dune. He continued: “I can’t imagine what it’s like to grow up with the onslaught of social media, it was such a relief to play characters struggling with an internal dilemma without the ability to go to Reddit, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok and figure out where they fit in.”

And, just in case, he clarified that “I’m not making a judgment, you can find your tribe there”.

About the film, he said that “I was dying to work with Luca again to tell a story that had the same foundations as the first, only this time it’s in the American Midwest in the ’80s about people who are disenfranchised. in every way possible.”

And for dessert

A film that has so many moving sequence shots filmed with a drone that it leaves Alejandro González Iñárritu like a baby at the breast. Athena is an action drama, based on the death of a 13-year-old boy, apparently due to mistreatment by the French police.

The protagonists are his three brothers, who live in the community of the title (and of the Greek tragedy), one is a policeman, another wants revenge and the third has business with drug traffickers. He is the second one who breaks into the police station and with the community steals weapons, and what will follow will be the merciless war between them and the police.

The film, another produced by Netflix in competition, was directed by Romain Gavras, son of Constantin Costa-Gavras, whose theme of political oppression led him to film such classics as Z Y Site status. Or the very Missingwhich took place in Pinochet’s Chile, and from which his son evidently took the white horse that ran through the streets of Santiago for a scene that contributes nothing and is more disjointed.

That said, this Friday there were three films in competition and the three competed with each other to show Julianne Moore, Mariano Cohn and the other members of the Jury how difficult it will be for them to find something to award among them.
