Guediguian’s ‘Gloria Mundi,’ Tiago Guedes’ ‘A Herdade’ to Debut at Venice

VENICE, Italy – French film director and screenwriter Robert Guediguian comes back to the Venice Film Festival with “Gloria Mundi,” the story of a family “as fragile as a house of cards.”

The film, starring Ariane Ascaride and Jean-Pierre Darroussin, is set in the French city of Marseille, where the members of a family gathered for the birth of baby Gloria.

The parents, a young couple that is facing tough times, meet again with Gloria’s grandfather, an ex-convict who comes back home after having served his sentence.

Guediguian (“The house on the sea,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” “Marius and Jeanette”) said that neo-capitalism has crushed human relations.

“I have always thought that cinema should move us, sometimes by presenting us with an example of the world as it could be, at others by showing us the world as it is,” French film director said in a statement.

“In short, we need both comedies and tragedies to continue to question our lifestyles.

“And we must continue to question ourselves more than ever in these troubled times so that we do not succumb to the illusion that there is something natural about the societies we live in.”

The 76th edition of the international Venice Film Festival will show “A Herdade,” the last work by Portuguese Tiago Guedes.

It’s been 14 years since the last time Guedes competed for the Golden Lion.

“We aimed for what I thought would be the most important thing, that would be the depth of these characters and the way of the historical moment the country crossed the life of the family and the way of those things worked in the silences of each character.”

Asked about how the film shows the end of patriarchy, Guedes said that showing how the role of women has changed over time was intentional.

“We always wanted to make the characters of the women a long time to grow and to stand up. That is a historical part of many countries, not just Portugal,” he added.

The movie, starring Albano Jeronimo, Sandra Faleiro and Miguel Borges, shows the story of a Portuguese family that owns one of the largest estates in Europe.

Through the characters, Guedes focuses on the political, economic, and social history of Portugal since the 1940s.
