Rome – The Locarno Film Festival will honor versatile Italian thesp Giancarlo Giannini with a career award and several screenings of his films, including his big-screen debut “Don’t Bother the Mosquito,” the start of a long collaboration with Lina Wertmuller.

Other directors Giannini has worked with include Luchino Visconti, Mario Monicelli, Dino Risi, Alberto Lattuada, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Martin Scorsese, and Ridley Scott.

Munich Fest Honors Udo Kier with CineMerit Award

6 June 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

German thesp Udo Kier will be honored by the Munich Film Festival with its CineMerit Award, given to an actor whose career spans Europe and the U.S.

Kier’s career is full of daring choices, and he’s worked with such icons as Andy Warhol (“Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein”), Rainer Werner Fassbinder (“Lili Marleen,” “Lola” and “Berlin Alexanderplatz”) and Lars von Trier (nine films including both volumes of “Nymphomaniac”).

In 1991, Kier made his first Hollywood film, “My Own Private Idaho,” from Gus Van Sant, and has acted in art films, genre films and Hollywood blockbusters.

Udo Kier is an actor who leaves a lasting impression, no matter what the role,” said festival director Diana Iljine in a statement. “He is an actor who is not afraid to take chances. And many of them have paid off. Udo Kier himself is a work of art.”

Previous recipients of the CineMerit Award include actors Julie Christie, »
