Marina Antunes [Film Festival 07.22.10] movie news

To go with the announcement that Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan is opening the Venice Film Festival, we have the announcement of the films that will be making a splash at Critics’ Week.

This year’s line-up is heavy on European releases, all of which are world premieres including Alix Delaporte’s Angèle et Tony about a recently released convict and her relationship with a fisherman, Massimo Coppola’s Hai Paura Del Buio, Eitan Tzur’s noir Hitparzut X (Naomi, Syllas Tzoumerkas’ Hora proelefsis (Homeland), Vlado Skafar's Oča (Dad), a drama about a father and his son and Pernilla August’s Svinalängorna (Beyond) which stars the newest of international stars Noomi Rapace.

Perhaps the most interesting of the films on the line-up is also the only one which is not European, Marcelino Islas Hernández’s Martha, about an older woman who loses her job to a computer.

On the surface this doesn’t really come across as the most interesting of line-ups but there’s always a surprise to be hand and with so many first time directors on the line-up, one or two of these may really impress.
