The Fabelmans and Amsterdam: the American 'big movies' that conquered the Rome Film Fest

If the jury awarded Latvian and Korean arthouse films, there are two titles that won the hearts of the public and which we will probably hear a lot about in the coming months

Film Festival and non-festival. The name of the Roman review that has just ended refers to a more popular involvement, yet the choice of the jury that awarded the films in competition was evidently elitist. Two films, the Latvian January and Korean Jeong-Sun they hoarded prizes: best work, director and actor for the first, grand jury prize and actress for the second. We go to the classic and point out a couple of American 'big movies', the ones that are worthwhile. – Photo | video

THE FABELMANS DI STEVEN SPIELBERG – Five minutes of applause and many emotions in the hall for the film signed by one of the most famous directors of all time. Also because he, Spielberg, is at the center of this film. The story is strongly autobiographical and starts from the filmmaker's childhood, marked by the passion born by chance after watching The greatest show in the world and being fascinated and frightened at the same time. The unbridled support of his mother (Michelle Williams), but also the involvement of the rest of the family, such as his computer genius father (Paul Dano) and his little sisters, the first protagonists of young Steven's amateur films. But, as in the best stories, there is no shortage of conflict and pain: from the anti-Semitism felt at school, to the discovery of a family secret that will lead to the separation between the parents and of which cinema will be the cause and panacea. At the cinema from 22 December 2022.

AMSTERDAM IN DAVID O'RUSSEL – Set in the 1930s, it tells the story of three friends: doctor Burt (Christian Bale in one of his umpteenth transformations), nurse Valerie (the magnetic Margot Robbie) and lawyer Harold (John David Washington). They witness a murder, but end up becoming suspects. They will find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking plots in American history or the failed coup that in 1933 wanted to depose newly elected President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. As for Amsterdam, which gives the film its title, it is more a place of the soul than a geographical destination. The result is aesthetic and overflowing, perhaps not suitable for those who don't like messy films. But a dizzying cast, also with Robert De Niro, Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana, forgives the excesses and offers escapism. From October 27 at the cinema.
