user
  by Sandy Mandelberger, Film New York Editor With the tabloids on both sides of the Atlantic covering the nasty divorce spat between Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and his former-actress wife (a spicy melange of adultery, illicit sex with teenage "models" and political corruption), the Italian penchant for soap opera and high drama continues unabated. Our on-going interest and curiosity about all things Italian c...

On the Road to the Palmarès

user
With two days away to the Palmarès, and two films left to screen, here is the official selection which has commanded the press attention for over a week - with comments by the directors. No one can ever predict what a jury with a chemistry of its own will decide. We have some ideas though from the day one press conference: Benoît Poelvoorde is going to take revenge on the films because he's never won an award (prompted by Bob Hope and Billy Crystal). Tilda Swinton and Quentin Tarantino will po...
