THE EXTRAORDINARY PERSONALITY OF VANESSA REDGRAVE

Venice (Italy) / The “extraordinary human and artistic personality” of the British actress Vanessa Redgrave has been worthy of the “Golden Lion” throughout her career at the opening of the 75th Venice International Film Festival, a recognition that the actress collected excitedly and with words of thanks to the cinema, the event, the city of Venice and their families.

For the Mostra, Redgrave (London, 1937) “has crossed the European author cinema, the lavish productions of Hollywood, television, theater” and is “unanimously considered among the best actresses of modern cinema”, an ideal interpreter of complex characters.

At the beginning of the gala, the presenter also highlighted “her extraordinary talent, her absolute excellence and extreme refinement” and she picked up the award with the room standing and a round of applause, marked by some cheers.

Redgrave received the statuette representing a winged lion from the president of the Bienale, Paolo Baratta, dressed in black, with long skirt and jacket, flat shoe and a simple bow that tied her gray hair.

The Oscar winner for best supporting actress for “Julia” (1977) Redgrave looked, almost incredulously, at the trophy, smiled at the audience and thanked the prize in a fluent Italian with the accent on the word “art”, art which, he said, is in the Bienale.

THE RED CARPET

The red carpet of Mostra should be a triumphant walk by Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy, since the Mostra of Venice opened its 75th edition with the screening of the film “First Man”, signed by Damien Chazelle, but the spontaneity of the veterans Vanessa Redgrave and Guillermo del Toro won the glamour of the new stars.

The Mexican filmmaker and the British actress coincided signing autographs and the actress pulled her cell phone out of her bag to become a ‘selfi’ with del Toro.

An image immortalized by the Mexican filmmaker after exchanging some words in Spanish with the actress and while her husband, Franco Nero, watched the scene amused.

Queen Elizabeth in “The Crown” appeared imposing on the red carpet in a pink dress and a wide red cape, while his cast partner in Firts Man Ryan Gosling did it with black pants and white jacket, no tie or bow tie.

Both approached smiling to the fans who waited from early afternoon and signed autographs, but in the case of Gosling only for a few minutes because he was the last to arrive and they had to enter the opening gala of the festival.

The fact raised protests among his followers, so many that the actor returned despite the opposition of members of security to please a few more people of the congregation.

It was the closing of a red carpet through which the members of the jury of the official competition presided over by Guillermo del Toro.

The British Naomi Watts, with a fuchsia dress and the Danish Trine Dyrholm, with a white one, and the other three feminine components of the jury – the Taiwanese Sylvia Chang, the French Nicole Garcia and the Polish Malgorzata Szumowska – opted for trousers, something unusual on the red carpets.
