War movies dominate Venice Film Festival

Several films, with conflict as the backdrop, on display at this year's annual film festival in Italy.

    The Venice Film Festival may be full of glamour - but this year it is also full of war.

    Conflict is the main theme, with five war films competing for the main prize and lots more that are not in competition.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from the Venice Film Festival.
