Sophia Loren Is The Guest of Honor For Cannes Classics

Sophia Loren
Of endless beauty and unsurpassed elegance, Sophia Loren is Guest of Honor for the Cannes Classics. In 1961, she was awarded the Best Actress for Two Women and in 1966 she was President of the Jury.
Marking the comeback to movies, Sophia Loren will be present at the screening of La Voce Humana (2014, 25mn), directed by Edoardo Ponti. During the same evening, Marriage Italian Style (Matrimonio all'italiana) by Vittorio De Sica (1964, 1h42) will be screened in 4K restoration by L'Immagine Ritrovata. The restoration was carried out in collaboration with Surf Film by Cineteca di Bologna and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage with a contribution from Memory Cinema, at L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory. The French distributor is Carlotta.
Sophia Loren will also give a Masterclass-an In Conversation which will take place on the stage of Salle Bunuel.
Celebrating Ten Years Of
Cannes Classic & Restored Film Prints
Ten years ago the relationship with contemporary cinema was shaken up by the digital revolution, and The Festival de Cannes created Cannes Classics, a selection section which allows production companies, right holders, cinematheques and national archives throughout the world to show the preservation of films considered of importance to the culture of the country and the progress of society.
Now an essential part of the Official Selection Cannes Classics presents old-established features and masterpieces from the history of film in restored prints. The 24 selected films for 2014 will be screened at the Palais des Festivals, Salle Bunuel or Salle du Soixantieme, with the restoration teams and with those still with us who directed the films. The program of is made up of twenty-two features and two documentaries. The films will be screened as the right holders wish them to be: DCP 2K or DCP 4K. For the first time no 35mm print will be screened at the Cannes Classics.

Paris, Texas (1984)
The great films in terms of milestones in the history of cinema, and a reflection of society at the time, include: Of Dollars / Pour Une Poignee De Dollars by Sergio Leone (1964, 1h40). To celebrate the birth in 1964 of the Italian western, the Cinematheque of Bologna will present the film restored in 4K by L'Immagine Ritrovata of A Fistful Of Dollars directed by Sergio Leone in 1964 with Clint Eastwood and Gian Maria Volonte; Paris, Texas by Wim Wenders (1984, 2h25) was awarded by the President of the Jury Dirk Bogarde and handed out on stage by Faye Dunaway. Wim Wenders will be back on the Croisette (besides his selection at Un Certain Regard with The Salt Of The Earth) with a new print of Paris, Texas;Cruel Story Of Youth (Seishun Zankoku Monogatari) by Nagisa Oshima (1960, 1h32), a presentation by Shochiku studio. The digital restoration was performed by 4K Shochiku Co., Ltd. under the supervision of Takashi Kawamata, cameraman for Nagisa Oshima. Carlotta will distribute the film in France andThe Last Metro (Le Dernier Metro) by Francois Truffaut (1980, 2h21) presented by MK2 and the Cinematheque francaise with the support of the French and American Fund on the occasion of the thirty years of Francois Truffaut's passing away.
