Michael Mann
USA 2023
130 min

Im Jahr 1957 findet sich der Autobauer und Rennsportbegründer Enzo Ferrari beruflich und privat an einem Wendepunkt. Seine Firma steht finanziell unter Druck, er muss sich auf die Suche nach Investoren machen, einer seiner besten Fahrer ist gerade bei einem Rekordversuch verunglückt, die Presse bezeichnet ihn als „Witwenmacher“. Gleichzeitig eskaliert der Konflikt mit seiner kämpferischen Ehefrau, die um den verstorbenen Sohn trauert und von seiner Geliebten, mit der er einen jüngeren Sohn heranzieht, nichts weiß. Beim bevorstehenden legendären „Mille Miglia“-Straßenrennen muss sich alles entscheiden. (Barbara Schweizerhof)

Despite their links to Hollywood, Michael Mann’s films have always been worlds away from standard studio productions. They unfold in a way that is never too linear. Their action scenes often oscillate between suspension and acceleration, their speed in perpetual flux. The narrative can change both pace and focus, as if Mann were guiding his films in real time while we are watching them.
FERRARI is probably his most densely structured work, but, like the rest of his oeuvre, it is also a film about time and our inability to control it. It’s difficult to find a better metaphor for this existential conundrum than a real-life story of a man obsessed with motor racing, an extreme, potentially fatal exercise in conquering time by means of speed.
Even though the retro cars Mann used for the shoot have been recreated in 3D, they still serve as an authentic example of the sort of classic industrial chic that remains untouched by modern technologies. Like those objects of desire, FERRARI is also an example of timeless storytelling. In this film, nothing is secondary, and the end of love never comes alone, but rather in the company of other, equally devastating crashes. (Evgeny Gusyatinskiy)
