Mazes

by Roberto Pugliese

After an amazing debut with The Father, Florian Zeller is back with a symmetrical work: The Son, a whirlwind of a story that uproots a borderline family, starring Anthony Hopkins, Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, and Vanessa Kirby. Casey Affleck and Zooey Deschanel walk the red carpet for Dreamin‘ Wild by Bill Pohlad, the human and musical story of Donnie and Joe Emerson.
In the Orizzonti section, past and present find their resolution in meta-filmic metaphor with Iranian film World War III by Houman Seyyedi, and in the difficult search for their father that the two twins carry out in Luxembourg, Luxembourg by Ukrainian filmmaker Antonio Lukich. Salvatore Mereu also chooses metaphor as a guideline for his filmmaking – his Bentu (Venice Days) is a story of harvest and wind in the Sardinia of the 1950s.
