Italy has entered the race for the Golden Lion with a vengeance with Gianni Amelio's tender "La Stella che non c'e" (The Missing Star), the first of three Italian movies screening in the official competition at the Venice Film Festival. Amelio is the last Italian to win the coveted prize for best film at the world's oldest festival, in 1998, and put himself in line for a reprise with this road movie about a factory mechanic's encounter with industrial China. AFP reports.
