Latest update : 2008-05-23

In "Sangue Pazzo" by Italian director Marco Tullio Giordana, Monica Bellucci plays Luisa Ferida, a passionate movie actress working for the fascist regime. Watch the interview. .

A familiar face of the Cannes festival, Marco Tullio Giordana previously secured attention with his movie "The Best of Youth," selected as part of the "Un certain regard" selection in 2003.

 

He comes back this year with "Sangue Pazzo," a film about the sombre history of fascist Italy, which is being presented outside the official competition.


The love story about two actors working in the fascist-dominated cinema industry stars Italian-born Monica Belluci. She is Luisa Ferida, a passionate actress in love with Osvaldo Valenti. Their anarchist and debauched ways scandalize the Italian bourgeoisie.
