Al Pacino on theatre, anonymity and Robin Williams

Al Pacino is a legend of cinema. Each movie he makes is an event in its own right. That's why there was such anticipation when he arrived at the Venice Film Festival with two new features - David Gordon Green's "Manglehorn" and Barry Levinson's "The Humbling".


The latter is adapted from Philip Roth's 2009 novel. Pacino plays an ageing stage actor who has lost the skills of his craft and finds inspiration from a young woman who turns up at his house. FRANCE 24's Hakim Zejjari caught up with him in Venice, along with the director.
