"
Born in Italy to an English mother and an Italian father, Greta Scacchi has lived in Australia as a teenager. "I feel as Australian than Italian and English, she said. I travel with an Italian passport and Australian! "
Revealed in the early 80s with Heat and Dust ( Heat and Dust ) by James Ivory, the actress quickly found among the most requested comedians on the international level. Mischief White (Michael Radford), A man in love ( Diane Kurys), Good Morning, Babylon(Paolo and Vittorio Taviani), Presumed Innocent (Alan J.

The Presidency, a surprise
The FFM, Greta Scacchi account its role in a democratic president.
"I am honored by the privilege given to me. I also was surprised that the presidency gives me.Over the years, I have had the opportunity to be a member of several juries. The experience always proves rewarding. It is interesting how the allegiances are made and unmade. In 1996, I was fortunate to be a member of the jury of the Cannes Film Festival and I developed an immediate complicity with Atom Egoyan, who was also part. We were inseparable. Then, on the fourth day, a film on which we were not at all agree separated us! Not everything is black and white when it comes to a work of art. This is what fascinates me. "
Thus, the actress will take to model Francis Coppola, the same one who presided over the jury at Cannes in 1996. "Francis took into account all opinions, even those members who supported a film he hated. He respected the choices of others. Believe me, it does not always happen like that! "
