Kim Ki-Duk's 18th film Pieta, which took approximately one month to shoot, is scheduled to premiere at Venezia. Pieta will be featuring Cho Min-Soo and Lee Jung-Jin. Takeshi Kitano's sequel to his 2010 yakuza film OUTRAGE, OUTRAGE BEYOND is set for its premiere as well after its much delayed shooting schedule (due to the Fukushima incident). Kitano is probably one of the hot favourites with his prior bagging of a Golden Lion and a Silver Lion.

Also of note is Terrence Malick's To the Wonder, starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem. It will be interesting to see how Malick will be treating this film that is said to experimental in nature, despite its star-studded cast. After all, The Tree of Life was arguably one of the most controversial films last year that split critics into distinct opinions.

What do you make of this year's Venice Film Festival lineup?
