Michael Mann leaves Venice empty-handed, where he brought a biopic dedicated to Enzo Ferrari and telling about Drake’s year of professional and family crisis, 1957.
VENICE – The Ferrari film leaves Venice without recognition, but Michael Mann’s film, which will be released at the end of November, will remain in the history of our city. On the red carpet of the presentation in the lagoon, chef Massimo Bottura, who was accompanying Antonella Ferrari (Piero’s daughter), lost his balance, saying: “She can win.” Everything went differently. Michael Mann leaves Venice empty-handed, where he brought a biopic dedicated to Enzo Ferrari, telling about Drake’s year of professional and family crisis, 1957, when the company risks going bankrupt, and about his wife Laura, from whom he lost his son Dino that year . earlier he learns about the existence of another family and another son, Pierrot. The Mille Miglia will be an opportunity for Ferrari to redeem itself. In the end, the Golden Lion went to Poor Creatures by Greek director Lanthimos, the Director’s Lion went to I Am Captain by Garrone, and the Volpi Cup went to actor Peter Sarsgaard for Memento and Cailee Spaeny for Priscilla. No recognition for Ferrari’s star cast, from Adam Driver to Penelope Cruz and Patrick Dempsey. A film that has divided audiences and critics since its first showing in Venice, but which certainly has the merit of bringing great fame to Modena, where most of the scenes were filmed. Mann will remain the love of our land and in any case the figurine of Bonissima, sealing the friendship born on the cobblestones.
