Venice Film Festival kicks off with the film Background noise

The film event kicked off this Wednesday with the black comedy Background noiseby Noah Baumbach, based on the novel by the famous writer Don DeLillo, with which aspires to get to the Oscar.

Baumbach, author of the successful story of a marriagealso starring Adam Driver, who competed in Venice in 2019, is competing this time with the adaptation of DeLillo’s novel, winner of the 1985 National Fiction Book Award in the United States.

“Baumbach has created an original, ambitious and compelling work of art that plays sparingly across multiple registers: dramatic, tongue-in-cheek, satirical. The result is a film that examines our obsessions, doubts and fears as they were captured in the 1980s, but with very clear references to contemporary reality”, explained the event’s director, film critic Alberto Barbera.

The film, full of sharp dialogues and a climate of existential doubt, opens the 79th edition of the oldest festival in the world, which this year also celebrates its 90th anniversary, despite the fact that it was interrupted by the war and the protest demonstrations in the decade of the 70.
