Michael Fassbender - Michael Fassbender Impresses Critics At Venice Film Festival


Michael Fassbender's new movie, Shame, has been earning rave review at 2011 Venice Film Festival.

The German-born actor plays Brandon, a man living in New York who has trouble controlling his sexual urges after his sister moves in with him. It is the second film from British director Steve Mcqueen following his 2008 movie, Hunger. The film is exciting critics in Venice and looking likely to be one of the festivals best films with hollywoodreporter.com describing Fassbender as an actor to watch out for "He's got it all: Looks, authority, physicality, command of the screen, great vocal articulation, a certain chameleon quality and the ability to suggest a great deal within while maintaining outward composure, just for starters." This year's festival has seen a variety of films premier including Madonna's second movie W.E. about American socialite Wallis Simpsons as well as A Dangerous Method also starring MICHAEL FEASSBENDER which tells the story of Sigmund Freud and the development of psychoanalysis.

Fassbender began his acting career starring in Steven Spielberg's world war two drama Band of Brothers before appearing in his first major movie in the 2006 epic, 300. Since then he has also appeared in Hunger, where he played Irish Republican Army prisoner Bobby Sands while on his hunger strike. For the role he won a British Independent Film Award, he is currently filming Good Vibrations which tells the story of a record shop owner during the birth of punk-rock due for release in 2012.
