ROME (AP) - A Polish thriller about an Afghan man on the run in Europe is a last-minute addition to the films vying for the Golden Lion prize at the Venice Film Festival.
Organizers said Monday that the film, by Jerzy Skolimowski, is called “Essential Killing” and has hardly any dialogue.
Italy’s top film festival this year runs from Sept. 1-11 on Venice’s Lido.
Among other films in competition is Sofia Coppola’s comic drama “Somewhere,” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan.”
