Update: Venice Winners: ‘A Pigeon Sat On A Branch’ Takes Golden Lion; ‘Birdman’ Shut Out; Adam Driver Best Actor

6 September 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update 12:20 Pm Pt: The Venice jury tonight gave its Golden Lion to a bird, but it wasn’t the particular bird many were expecting. Alejandro G Inarritu’s opening night hit Birdman was shut out of the awards. The Golden Lion instead went to Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence. The metaphysical film is the final leg of a trilogy about what it means to be a human being. It carries on from 2000’s Songs From The Second Floor and 2007’s You, The Living. Pigeon was well-received by critics here so it’s not a total surprise – and this was a movie folks had been waiting for since it didn’t turn up on the Cannes roster after Andersson’s previous two debuted there. Jury member Tim Roth said he liked Birdman and told the press corps of its omission amongst the prizes, »

Box Office for Italian Films Hits 30% Market Share, But Lower Pic Prod Coin is Worrying Trend

28 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the year when Italian cinema took the foreign-language Oscar for “The Great Beauty,” the country’s film industry is going through a transformative phase.

First the positives: The local box office in 2013 was up, albeit a mere 1.4% to €624.9 million ($830 million), and the first quarter of 2014 shows a more substantial 13% box office uptick compared with the same 2013 period. This, despite Italy still being in the throes of its worse recession ever. More importantly, Italian movies accounted for 30% of last year’s intake. That’s among the highest local market shares in Europe.

On the downside: In January the Italian Culture Ministry disclosed alarming figures showing a 27% drop in Italo film investments in 2013 to $495 million, compared with 2012, while the country’s cinematic output remained substantially stable, at 167 pictures.

Partly due to pics shot digitally on the cheap, the average budget of an Italian movie these days is a modest $2.3 million.

Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Haugesund primed for 42nd edition

15 August 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Norwegian festival will open with Beatles; record number of works-in-progress; 350 delegates for New Nordic Films.

This year’s 42nd Norwegian International Film Festival Haugesund (Aug 16 – 22) will open with a film that is receiving plenty of local attention.

Danish director Peter Flinth’s Beatles is adapted from one of Norway’s most popular coming-of-age novels.

Scripted by Axel Hellstenius, it follows four Oslo boys in their adolescent and early adult years between 1965-1972.

“True friendship endures all, and no band in the world is better than The Beatles,” concludes the film which will have its world premiere in Haugesund and stars Halvor Tangen Schultz, Jonathan Chedeville, Louis Williams and Håvard Jackwitz.

“It was like climbing a mountain, starting with getting the rights to The Beatles’ music,” said Norwegian producer Jørgen Storm Rosenberg about his new film.

The opener is a fitting send off for festival director Gunnar Johan Løvvik, who will step down after having run the event »

David Cronenberg's chilly Maps To The Stars is just the latest Nyff visit for the Canadian genius, showing alongside festival faves the Dardenne Brothers and their new film, Two Days, One Night.

2014 Nyff: Chazelle, Broomfield, Bonello, Ferrara, Sang-soo, Hansen-Løve Make Cut

While Sundance (Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash and Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip) and Berlin (Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters, Yann Demange’s ’71, Alain ResnaisLife of Riley) titles are indeed present, the 52nd edition (much like previous years) is a Cannes heavy and slightly Venice lopsided affair/showcase for Manhattanites.

Also the lieu for subtitle friendly distrib companies to measure their summer purchases (IFC, Spc, Cinema Guild, Cohen Media), leading the pack in non Croisette or Lido items, we’re most curious about Pedro Costa’s Horse Money, Matías Piñeiro’s The Princess of France and Eugène Green’s La Sapienza and are looking forward to multi-volume Eden from Mia Hansen-Løve and Nick Broomfield’s (Telluride-tiff) Tales of the Grim Sleeper (see pic above) Added to Fincher’s Gone Girl, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and Iñárritu’s Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance here are »
