The closing credits will roll on this year’s Venice film festival on Saturday. Eleven days of screenings, parties and interviews will end with an awards ceremony, where the Golden Lion for the best picture is handed out.

This year’s frontrunners include the ultra-violent Korean film ‘Pieta,’ Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology story ‘The Master’ and French 1970s drama ‘Apres Mai.’

Brian de Palma’s thriller ‘Passion’ is among the other contenders. But jeers after a press screening and negative early reviews suggested it was at best an outsider for the coveted prize.

‘Passion’ explores the sexual attraction and professional rivalry between two female advertising executives.

“Those two women, they use sex as a weapon,” said Noomi Rapace, who stars in the film.

“They are not in love and they are not really attracted to each other but it’s one of the tools they use against each other and against people around them.”
