The Wrestler

directed by Darren Aronofsky, France/USA 2008, 111'

  • Golden Lions in Venice for one of the most compelling independent American directors. A subtle and moving story about an aging wrestler at the end of his career. Aronofsky plays with the genre of sports cinema by masterfully shifting the emphasis of emotions commonly aroused by fighting to those of the changing fate of Mickey Rourke’s character, whose weary face says more than the film’s action.
