Mi Fai Un Favore

  The situation is reminiscent of last year’s Oscar wining foreign film ‘Kolya, and would be a perfect Hollywood sentimental comedy… especially considering that Ornella Muti, photogenic as always and even better than usual, offers a spirited role as the victim of the little mischievous child (Julienne Liberto), who acts her role as a sweet little girl, with no affectation and who was cast very well.

  What are our young film celebrities up to these days? So many little ‘stars’ who are fussed and spoiled by everyone, with their own personal dressing rooms, their private caravans, their own make-up artists and hairdressers, all ready to serve! But is there among them a new Jodi Foster or a new Richard Gere?
Rosaria Maria Caracciolo is the owner of the filming agency “Junior Film” and is seen here with a group of her young actors and actresses. The mascot of the group is the young star Julienne Liberto who is presently shooting a film with Ornella Muti and Alessandro Gassman. Julienne may well be the next Hollywood celebrity!

Una Lunga Notte

  “Una lunga notte” portrays the drama of a couple who are faced with a terrible reality; the serious illness of their daughter Carolina (Julienne Liberto), who is suddenly taken ill. It is immediately discovered that the girl has a fatal malformation of her heart. Her parents, Paola e Alberto (Stefania Orsola Garello and Massimo Venturiello) have to face many difficulties; the waiting list for heart transplants is long and the organs are not always compatible. The couple are desperate and so turn to the unscrupulous dealer (Carlo Croccolo), who represents a mysterious health organisation in Switzerland.
The director of Una Lunga Notte, Ilaria Cirino, was eager to stress: “before we began shooting the film I worked very hard with the actors to prepare them for the long sessions on the set."
And what about the central character, Julienne Liberto? “I really had loads of fun on this set…” Julienne declares candidly… “Ilaria treated me like a true actress, not like some other directors who just give me the script and do nothing else.”
