FIRST HILL OF VISION
PICS FROM HISTORICAL FILM
|The film had a March movie festival premiere in Italy|
Mario Capecchi, future Nobel prize winner for medicine, was born in Italy to an American mother, poet and political activist (Haddock), who was arrested by the fascists in 1941 and subsequently interned in a German concentration camp. With that arrest, Mario (Jake Donald Crookes), at the age of five, begins a life that soon becomes wild, violent and
adventurous. When his mother miraculously finds him in
1947, both will begin a path of rebirth that will lead Mario, to use his
own words, "from rags to riches". He won Nobel in 2007.

THE POT AU FEU
JULIETTE BINOCHE TO LEAD PERIOD SET CULINARY FILM
We have already seen her doing culinary wonders in Chocolat, but now Juliette Binoche will star in THE POT AU FEU with Benoit Magimel. Set in the world of French gastronomy in 1885, it charts the relationship between Eugenie, an esteemed cook, and Dodin, the chef she’s been working
for over the last 20 years. Growing fonder of one another, their bond turns into a romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. The story is inspired by the famous French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
|In real life, Benoit and Juliette have a daughter together|
