Ranking among my best of the fest (tied with Hannah), Samuel Maoz finished “2nd place” at the Venice Film Festival for his sophomore film claiming the Grand Jury prize. While I was slightly more convinced about the prowess behind the hard to categorize drama, our Tommaso Tocci who reviewed the film on the Lido is perhaps more of a fan of Lebanon. Duyring the post screening Q&A we learn about the remarkable anecdotal backstory to the project while Lior Ashkenazi add his too cents worth for good measure. SPC will likely try to nab a spot among the finalists for Best Foreign language category.
