73rd Venice International Film Festival 2016 film festival edition

The 73rd annual Venice International Film Festival was held from 31 August to 10 September 2016. English director Sam Mendes was the President of the Jury for the main competition. The opening night film was Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land. The Golden Lion was awarded to Lav Diaz's film The Woman Who Left.



After a lengthy relationship, Tommaso manages to get away from Chiara, his companion. Now waiting for him - he thinks - is endless freedom and countless adventures. He is a young, handsome, kind and romantic actor, but he perpetually swings between elan and resistance and soon realizes he is only free to repeat the same script: in short, he is a "ticking bomb" on the road of the women he meets. His relationships always end in the same painful way, between unspeakable thoughts and paralyzing fears. This repetition compulsion is one day finally interrupted and within him it generates an absolute void. Tommaso is now alone and has no more escape: he has to confront that moment of his past when everything stopped.
