The Coppa Volpi for Best Actress in Venice 79 goes to Cate Blanchett. The actress is the star of Tár, that director Todd Field himself (returned to directing after 16 years) said he built with her, for her and around her. On the screen, Cate interprets Lydia Tár, first female conductor of a German orchestra, struggling with the (difficult) management of power in a world that is mainly male. Lydia is very powerful, but the clouds of abuse and MeToo are gathering around her. And she’ll have to get out of it.

“It is an honor to receive this award. The wonderful thing about this Festival is that it again invites the audience to the halls. And I want to say again to the audience who welcomed us and the film: thank you very much, “said Cate with the award in hand, excited,” Surely being here is thanks to a job I did with a wonderful team. I certainly wouldn’t be here without a wonderful director. This award also belongs to him who has returned to making films after 16 years ». It’s still: “This film changed my life enormously as a human being. I would also like to thank my family for putting up with my absence. But I’d also like to thank Tod’s family for letting him go. And then I would like to thank the people around the world who make music, who inspire us and who have helped us especially in the last two years ».
