    Venice Review: Xavier Beauvois’ Grave-Robbing Comedy ‘The Price of Fame’

    Amiable if overlong, "The Price of Fame," the new film from festival circuit fixture Xavier Beauvois, whose last film “Of Gods and Men” won the Grand Prix in Cannes 2010, is a serviceable addition to the surprisingly well-defined subgenre of the graverobbing comedy.
