#Locarno #surprise #Silver #Lifetime #Achievement #Award
– ROME, AUGUST 14 – The 74th edition of the Locarno Film Festival, in Piazza Grande, also ends with a surprise, the Lifetime Achievement Award to Dario Argento for his work and the surprising interpretation in Vortex by Gaspar Noé, scheduled at Locarno, after the world debut at the Cannes Film Festival.
“” It is the first time that I am an actor and I was initially very perplexed – said Argento on the Croisette -. Then Noé calmed me and I discovered that I just had to improvise on a theme that changed every time and do it together with my suffering partner. “Vortex tells the life of a critic (Argento) and the difficulties of his family. His wife is in fact ill. of Alzheimer’s, while he has a long-time mistress who he has been forced to abandon to take care of his wife full-time.The two also have to deal with a son struggling with drug addiction.
“Vortex” speaks of love even beyond what is imagined – added Argento – a love that is sometimes so strong that it takes you beyond reality itself. And in the case of people who are no longer young this can become dramatic “. .
