Singer songwriter Nick Cave made an appearance of sorts at the Venice film festival with 'One More Time With Feeling'. The documentary by Andrew Dominik shows Cave following the death of his teenage son. SOUNDBITE director Andrew Dominik, saying (English): ''I mean I think Nick realised he was going to have to promote his record and there was no way for him to discuss the record without talking about the context in which the record was made which was the death of his son so his solution - it's not that he doesn't want to talk about what happened with Arthur but I think he just didn't want to do it with a whole lot of strangers - you know - so his solution was to make a film - which would give him safer space you know.'' SOUNDBITE director Andrew Dominik, saying (English): ''Yeah, I mean his feelings about it are mixed, I mean how could they not be? You know, he doesn't like watching himself talk, he feels that anything he says doesn't really do justice to the situation or his feelings or the feelings of those around him, you know Nick's a person who is not easy on himself, but you know how could you ... I don't know how he could look at that movie in the same way anyone else would see it?''
