Carlo Verdone and Sabrina Ferilli, stars of “LA GRANDE BELLAZZA,” directed by Paolo Sorrentino, and the only Italian film in competition at the 2013 Festival de Cannes. The cast which also includes Sabrina Ferilli, Isabella Ferrari as well as Roberto Herlitzka, Iaia Forte, Pamela Villoresi, Galatea Ranzi, Anna Della Rosa and Giusy Merli, Kravos, visited the lounge of Cannes Movie Star at 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
LA GRANDE BELLAZZA is described by the festival as “Aristocratic ladies, social climbers, politicians, high-flying criminals, journalists, actors, decadent nobles, prelates, artists and intellectuals – whether authentic or presumed – form the tissue of these flaky relationships, all engulfed in a desperate Babylon which plays out in the antique palaces, immense villas and most beautiful terraces in the city? They are all there, and they are not seen in a good light? Jep Gambardella, 65, indolent and disenchanted, his eyes permanently imbued with gin and tonic, watches this parade of hollow, doomed, powerful yet depressed humanity. A moral lifelessness enough to make one’s head spin? And in the background, Rome in summer. Splendid and indifferent, like a dead diva?”
