(ANSA) – NAPLES, 02 JAN – ” It is an honor for us to receive these awards. The story of ‘Life Ahead’ and the character of Madame Rosa entered my heart from the moment I read the script. I wish everyone a year full of light, love and serenity ”. Sophia Loren greets with a video message ‘Capri, Hollywood The international Film Festival’, which assigns her the award as ‘best actress of the year’ for ‘Life in front of herself’ directed by Edoardo Ponti, winner for best non-original screenplay. The 25th edition of the festival, which traditionally opens the season of the International Awards, has announced for the Netflix film a total of four awards: Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Song ‘Io Sì’ by Laura Pausini composed by Diane Warren, which are added to the Humanitarian Award.
In the final online gala, squeezing the two awards depicting the characteristic silver Mermaid of Capri, Hollywood, Sophia Loren explains the profound meaning of this film today for her: “ Not only for the important message of tolerance, empathy and humanity , but also because it tells a beautiful story of love and friendship between two people who on the surface separate everything, but who are actually linked not only through pain and suffering but above all through hope and resilience ”. Then a thought about the year that has just ended and the suffering of the world for the pandemic. ” It has been a difficult year, it has been a year of loss and pain but it has also been a year in which we have seen people help each other and cheer themselves up in the most beautiful and unexpected way ”. The message of the film for Sophia is therefore more timely than ever: ” The film speaks precisely of these moments of humanity between us, moments of compassion, of love, everything that unites us and makes us stronger. Thank you, for this recognition.
I wish everyone a year full of light, love and serenity ”.
