The award goes to an original film that marries boldness, style, meaning, precision and surprise.

CPH:DOX jury (Charlie Lyne, Olivia Neergaard-Holm, Boris Mitic)

Beautiful Things is a spectacularly shot documentary with a fugue structure.

Glen Kenny (NY Times)

His particular talent on display here is a kind of synesthesia, making music into images rather than using music to enhance images.

Stephanie Zacherek (Time Magazine)

A galvanizing soundtrack. Like any good symphonist, Ferrero knows the power of silence;
the soundtrack makes room for dead spots that suggest a world scraped clean of all the clutter.

David Bordwell (Critic, Professor Emeritus of Film Studies)

The beauty of impermanence. An exciting and revealing experience.

La Domenica – Il Sole 24 Ore

Beautiful Things is a film-symphony, a palimpsest both of the 9th century and the contemporary world in a globalising observation.

Bruno Roberti – Il Manifesto

I have remained rather impressed. Astonishing job.

Marco Müller

Finally the Italian nonfiction cinema is free from the dross of the cinema of the real. Stylistically inventive and surprising.

Adriano Aprà

A visionary work that during the last Venice Film Festival left the lagoon with wide open eyes and closed mouth.

Fabrique du cinéma

The editing of the film is impressive, as the sequences overlap at some points,
mirroring the way that music is often brought in early to transition scenes in movies.

Kaleem Aftab (The independent, Cineuropa)

I watched Beautiful Things right away and VERY much liked it.
The combination of sophisticated music and fantastic cinematography was wonderful. I truly enjoyed it.

Stefan Sagmeister (The Happy Film, Sagmeister&Walsh)

One of the best debuts of the last years.

Nonsolocinema

This work in unparalleled. It’s a great surprise. Stunning pictures.

Marco Tullio Giordana

A film of a great beauty, a great audio-visual sensibility.

Le Devoir (Canada)

A stunning visual symphony on the objects and on the process of dis-humanization of the man of grandiose visionary power.
One of the best movie of the 74th Mostra del Cinema. A miracle maybe.

Quinlan

Beautiful Things by Giorgio Ferrero really marvels at your insight. An audiovisual and punk song,
a sonata for multiple perceptions, from unexpected musical trends. To audio-watch abandoned to evasion.

Uzak

In his enchanting film, through a breathtaking sound design work,
Ferrero accompanies us along the course of a lifetime, more lives, so many lives, whose steps unite us.

Cineblog

A SYMPHONIC JOURNEY INTO OUR OBSESSIVE CONSUMPTION.

The many objects we accumulate begin their production journey in silent secluded industrial site where bordeline men work in isolation without any interference. Van is a floorhand, the maintenance man on a large oilfield in Texas. Danilo is the chief engineer of a freighter. Andrea is a scientist. He has lived his whole life between mathematical formulae and the silence of the anechoic chambers. Vito has spent half of his life looking after slot machines. Today he is in charge of an immense pit for waste.These men, unwittingly, provide the basis for the whole sequence of creation, transport, marketing and destruction of the objects that feed our bulimic lifestyle.These men are monks in temples of steel and carry out the same mechanical rituals every day in solitude.
She and He are an ordinary couple.
They have spent their life accumulating stuff to the point of saturation. They grew up in the boom years of commercial television, and they are the first generation to have been freed from it by the internet. Today they are in their forties and are looking for a way out. She and He are us.
And we have never heard about them.

DENOISE

A short movie in virtual reality by
GIORGIO FERRERO e FEDERICO BIASIN

The objects we presume we need in our every day life begin and finish their cycle inside silent and spectral industrial and scientific locations.
Four confessions about the topic of silence lead the spectator to the borders of his daily life in incredibly fascinating places and hardly reachable in any other way.

Produced by Mybosswas, Visual pro 360 and Venice Biennale.
