Goodbye Venice, Hello Toronto

As we say “ciao” to Venice (sorry), we now have the Toronto International Film Festival to look forward to. Natalie won’t be there in person but “New York, I Love You” will be shown in an unfinished state. Not only is she acting in Mira Nair’s segment but has directed a segment herself.

The word out of Venice was that Eve was very promising. Now it’ll be interesting to see if her NYILY segment can match it. One things for sure, we’ll get more proper reviews out of Toronto.

The film has public screenings on Saturday and Monday. I don’t know if tickets are still available but you can try over here. If you do manage to go we’d definitely love to hear what you thought.

Venice tidbits

Time for a bumper update, bringing together several smaller bits of news out of Venice.

Hopefully someone out there might be able to help.

Video of Eve + press conference interview

The news ain’t stopping for nobody. If you head over here you can see a video featuring 3 scenes from Eve and footage of Natalie talking about the film at a press conference.

Maybe my dramedy guess wasn’t that far off the mark after all.

We also have a great deal of the text from that press conference. The original Italian is here but below we have a rough translation.

Natalie Portman what is autobiographical in its debut in the direction of short Eve and what were the themes more interested in telling?

‘Eve is actually inspired by my personal experience, I would not define it as autobiographical even if telling of some interpersonal relationships between two elderly persons I am very inspired by my grandmother, who has had a profound influence on my growth. But it is only inspired by her is not a portrait. Rather I have drawn a lot from family stories of my friends and their personal experiences. I was interested in telling the relationship between generations. Like how the young confront the elderly, and vice versa. Eve I would define it as a reflection of what I have learned, through me who is next, intergenerational relationships. (more…)
