62nd Venice Film Festival Opens

“The festival opened on Wednesday with the Hong Kong martial arts epic Seven Swords and runs until 10 September. There are 19 films up for competition, including Goodnight and Good Luck directed by George Clooney, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Proof and Terry Gilliam’s The Brothers Grimm. Security has been tightened in the wake of last month’s bomb blasts in London.”
