Taormina fest hails Soavi, Rossi Stuart

Taormina fest hails Soavi, Rossi Stuart
ROME -- Michele Soavi was given the award for best director for Arrivederci Amore, Ciao and up-and-coming actor and director Kim Rossi Stuart was given the prize for best actor in two of the year's top Italian films on the final day of the Taormina Film Festival. The 52nd edition of the Taormina event -- which ran June 20 through Sunday -- featured a less ambitious and almost exclusively Italian schedule this year after the festival's leading sponsor backed out at the 11th hour, leaving organizers with a 500,000 euro ($630,000) budget shortfall. There was no dominant film among the festival's 14 major awards, with no film appearing in more than two categories. The 36-year-old Rossi Stuart -- whose debut directorial effort Anche Libero Va Bene won accolades after screening at the recent Festival de Cannes -- was one of the stars of the Taormina event, taking home the Gian Maria Volonte Best Actor award for two acting roles: one from Anche Libero Va Bene and the other from Michele Placido's gangster film Romanzo Criminale (Crime Novel).
