Storyline

Hollywood actor Johnny Marco, nested in his luxury hotel of choice, is a stimulated man. Drinking, parties and women keep a creeping boredom under wraps in between jobs. He is the occasional father of a bright girl, Cleo, who may be spoiled but doesn't act it. When Cleo's mother drops her off and leaves town, Johnny brings her along for the ride, but can he fit an 11-year-old girl into his privileged lifestyle? Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

This is the one film I wanted to see at the Venice Film Festival and, dear, oh dear. A strange "tribute" to the French New Wave, at least that's what I think I thought. No emotional hooks to be found even if the story by its very nature should be emotional, not sentimental but emotional. I was in a sort of emotional limbo from beginning to end, hoping to cling on to something but not such luck. To be a French New Wave director you have to be French and working in France preferably pre-1970. What is Sofia Coppola all about? This film, after "Marie Antoniette", makes me wonder. I can't guess what her intention was here. News that ex boyfriend Quentin Tarantino, president of the Venice Film Festival Jury, awarded "Somewhere" the top honor doesn't really surprise me but it makes me so mad. What an outrageous blatant move. I wonder what Tarantino's adoring Italian critics are going to say now.
