Third Italian film in competition today at the Venice Film Festival, with Mario Martone presenting ‘Qui rido io’, the story of the playwright and actor Eduardo Scarpetta, played by Toni Servillo. Also in competition is the Ukrainian ‘Vidblysk (Reflection)’ by Valentyn Vasyanovych: a political film set in eastern Ukraine where a doctor is taken prisoner by the Russian military. Three titles go out of competition: ‘Old Henry’, the western by Potsy Ponciroli with Tim Blake Nelson and Scott Haze; the documentary ‘Republic of silence’ by Syrian director Diana El Jeiroudi which tells the journey of a group of Middle Eastern exiles in Europe; ‘Life of Crime 1984-2020’ by Jon Alpert, which is a sort of crime reality show that follows three men over 36 years to tell the lost war by the United States against drugs.
