What is Ferrari movie about?
Ferrari is an adaptation from the book Enzo Ferrari: The Man and the Machine by Brock Yates. The film is set in 1957 when the Ferrari company is dealing with the threat of bankruptcy. It follows Driver, who plays Enzo Ferrari and depicts his personal struggles including the aftermath of his son’s death. With the company in dire straits, he makes a gamble on the Mile Miglia, a 1,000 mile-race across Italy.
The film made its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday (31 August) night. Driver and Mann received a six-minute standing ovation from the packed Sala Grande Theatre. Driver was captured fighting back tears during the movie, which received rave reviews from critics.
Mann, who directed the film, built exact Ferrari replicas and included audio recordings of the original cars. Although it has been reported by Reuters that Driver did not actually drive a Ferrari during the film, his co-star Patrick Dempsey did. Speaking about the experience he told Reuters: “It was quite terrifying. Driving a modern car you have a roll cage, but there was no cage with these cars.”
Is there a trailer?
A trailer for Ferrari was released on Wednesday (30 August), just ahead of the movie’s premiere at Venice. The 90-second trailer features an intense build-up with minimal dialogue, it features Driver as Enzo promising a racing driver: “If you get into one of my cars. You get in to win.”
