This weekend marked the climax of one of the best editions of the Venice Film Festival. Many films were expected: some managed by famous directors, others by emerging ones. The jury, chaired by the Mexican Guillermo Del Toro, has crowned Rome, the latest work of compatriot Cuaròn, as best film. Despite this, there have been numerous movies which have earned our sympathy. Today we will talk about three of them.
Here, in our opinion, are the revelations of the 75th edition of the Festival.

 The announcement: this film, directed by the Turk Mahmut Fazil Coskun, narrates the deeds of four soldiers who decide to carry out a coup. The movie is a well-balanced hybrid between a thriller and a comedy. Violent scenes are in fact followed by deeply comic dialogues, creating a disorienting effect. All this is framed by a superb photography in which well-managed spaces play a fundamental role both for narration and the spectators’ mere visual pleasure. This film won the special jury’s prize in the Orizzonti section, but we do not know when it will bè available in Italian cinemas.

Capri-Revolution: This film directed by Mario Martone (known above all for Il Giovane Favoloso) is set in a chaotic Italy that is preparing to enter the First World War. It’s the story of the meeting between a group of North European painters, a goat shepherd and the doctor of the village. The film, which is inspired by the life of the painter Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach, is centered more on the anthropological aspect than on the artistic one, focusing the attention on the development of relationships among humans. Capri Revolution has won several prizes, including the Pasinetti Prize (national union of Italian cinema journalists) and the Soundtrack stars award (best soundtrack).

At Eternity’s Gate: the last years of the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh‘s life, are directed by Julian Schnabel (Famous for Le Scaphandre et le Papillon, Before Night Falls and Basquiat).  The artist is performed by a fantastic (and also very similar) Willem Dafoe who has won the Coppa Volpi as the best male actor for his outstanding interpretation. At Eternity’s Gate is a magical journey in the mind of one of the most talked about, famous and brilliant artists of modern time.
