Three Chinese movies to vie for crown at Venice
The 68th annual Venice Film Festival held in Venice, Italy, is scheduled to open on Aug. 31 and will last until Sept. 10. The Sala Grande, with a larger screen, more seating and a variety of new facilities, will once again be greeting its new guests.
The nomination list of this year’s festival has impressed onlookers, who have regarded it as one of the most anticipated event of its kind with its selection of highly anticipated films.
While no Chinese films competed at the Berlin Film Festival or the Cannes International Film Festival this year, there will be three contestants for the Golden Lion.
“Life Without Principle” by Hong Kong director Johnnie To has been added to the lineup of the Venice festival.
The heist flick tells the intertwining stories of a financial analyst, a thug and a cop, whose worlds collide with the appearance of a bag of money worth $5 million.
