Venice Film Festival 2022

Closed on Saturday, September 10 79th Venice Film Festival, has definitely returned to its pre-Covid glories, with intermittent comings and goings of actors, directors, fans and enthusiasts who inhabited Lido in these eleven days dedicated to the seventh art. The red carpet, as always, played a fundamental role, a showcase of glamor that received great and long-awaited movie stars and others, present at the premiere of the films that will gradually populate international cinemas. Also this year in the section of films in competition there was no shortage of Italian films, although in a slight minority compared to last year, among the films that have already found a certain critical consensus was the opening film, White Noise , from Noah Baumbach and also for the feature film “Argentina, 1985”, by Santiago Miltre. Great expectations also for titles like “Blonde” with Ana de Armas in the role of Marylin Monroe or even “The Whale” with an intense and dramatic Brendan Fraser, among Italians great enthusiasm for the return of Luca Guadagnino with “Bones and All” with the inevitable Timothée Chalamet and a special applause for “Lord of the Ants” by Gianni Amelio. There was also a certain enthusiasm for Out-of-Competition films: among the most anticipated was “Don’t Worry Honey”, the second work directed by Olivia Wilde starring an international pop star like Harry Stylesbut also “Dry” from Paolo Virzi already received some consents. Here, then, are the titles awarded in this 79th edition of the event.
