For most of the planet, the official end of summer does not come until the autumn equinox on September 21.

Hommage To Nathalie Baye in New York

user
What is it about French actresses, that they grow even more beautiful and, arguably, more talented with age. Jeanne Moreau and Catherine Deneuve are but two examples of this gorgeous gallic phenomenon, where their later roles take on even greater gravitas as the subtle lines of their face change, their voices lowers a register and their once all-too-fragile beauty slightly hardens and becomes as enduring as a Greek sculpture. But blood courses through their veins and passion, if not only...

Confronting The Shadows Of History

user
  HENRY OF NAVARRE (Jo Baier, Germany/France/Spain)  It is always tempting to ascertain a link or a thematic accent in the programming of a film festival. Threads are there but creating a strong argument in that direction is always a bit of a false road. In truth, film festivals come together based on the films that are made available to them. However, as with an individual, each Festival has its own distinct personality and interests.  At the Montreal World Film Festival, ...

So Many Festivals, So Little Time

Montreal is hot and humid, which is perhaps the weather I could be expect if I was attending that other major internation...

An Italian Diva In Montreal

user
  The word diva is often used these days to denote bad behavior and outsized arrogance but in its original incarnation, it was coined to described someone whose artistic gifts were, in fact, divine….a gift from God. So, it is with this original interpretation that I acknowledge the presence at the Montreal World Film Festival of a true cinematic diva, the Italian actress Stefania Sandrelli.   Sandrelli has been part of the cinema firmament for over 60 years. As with her...
