The film director Ettore Scola, a leading figure in Italian cinema for more than three decades, has died at the age of 84.

Scola’s work included A Special Day, a 1977 Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated movie featuring Marcello Mastroianni as a persecuted radio journalist and Sophia Loren as a sentimental housewife, meeting against a backdrop of rising fascism in 1930s Italy.

He also wrote and directed We All Loved Each Other So Much, a 1974 comedy-drama about the postwar lives of three partisans fighting for the liberation of Italy. The film won the Golden prize at the ninth Moscow international film festival in 1975. The following year he won best director at the Cannes film festival for The Good, Bad and Ugly.

Scola died on Tuesday in Rome’s polyclinic, where he had been in a coma since Sunday after being admitted to the hospital’s cardiac surgery unit, press reports said.

The Italian prime minister, Matteo Renzi, paid tribute to Scola, saying he was a “master” of the screen “with an ability that was as incredible as it was razor-sharp in reading Italy, its society and the changes it went through”.

On Twitter, Renzi wrote that his death “leaves a huge void in Italian culture”.

Dario Franceschini, the Italian minister of culture and tourism, tweeted: “A great teacher, an amazing man, young until the last day of his life.”

The French film and television actor Frédérique Bel shared an image of Loren and Mastroianni in A Special Day.

After entering the movie industry as a screenwriter in 1953, Scola got his first chance as director in 1964 with Let’s Talk About Women, an innovative work of nine vignettes in which Vittorio Gassman plays different characters who seduce women.

He directed 41 films over nearly 40 years, according to the Internet Movie Database.

Paolo Mereghetti, the Corriere della Sera’s cinema critic, said Scola had been a distinctive “political” voice in Italy’s postwar cinema.

A former member of the Italian Communist party, Scola even became minister of culture in a “shadow” cabinet set up by party leaders in 1989.

“He understood where Italy was going, and few cinema directors have that insight,” Mereghetti told the television channel Sky TG24.

Italian Director Ettore Scola died today in Rome at the age of 84.

He had been in a coma since Sunday after being admitted to the cardiac surgery unit of a hospital in Rome, according to the reports.

Mr Scola’s work included A Special Day, a 1977 Oscar-nominated movie featuring Marcello Mastroianni as a persecuted radio journalist and Sophia Loren as a sentimental housewife, meeting against the backdrop of rising fascism in Italy of the 1930s.

« We All Loved Each Other So Much (C’eravamo tanto amati), was a wide fresco of post-World War II Italian life and politics, and dedicated to fellow director Vittorio De Sica ».

Italian premier Matteo Renzi said Scola had an incomparable way of reading Italian society and that his death « leaves an enormous hole in Italian culture ».

Scola directed 41 films and wrote the screenplay for nearly 90 movies. He was named Best Director by the Cannes Film Festival in 1974 and served on the festival’s jury in 1988.

The scene where the two actors move between sheets drying in the sun on the terrace of the apartment block where they are staying is one of the most handsome scenes in Italian cinema, film critic Francesco Castelnuovo said.

Mon verdict de Star Wars VII / My review about

Mon verdict de Star Wars VII / My review about Star Wars VII

Star Wars Episode VII « Le Réveil de la Force » mon verdict :

J’ai passé une très bonne soirée franchement. J’ai aimé le film. Après c’est vrai qu’il s’inspire beaucoup de l’épisode IV « Un nouvel espoir » faut dire ce qui est mais je n’ai pas été déçu sincèrement. C’est une histoire différente, y a de nouveaux personnages, des anciens et pas mal de surprises. Des clins d’œil, de l’humour, de l’émotion, de l’action. Tous les acteurs (trices) jouent très bien, les décors, les paysages, les costumes, les plans de caméra sont superbes, variés et bien réalisés. Les codes de Star Wars ont été respectés c’est l’essentiel. C’est un premier épisode d’une nouvelle trilogie quoi. Le film n’est pas parfait mais pas mauvais non plus, c’est un bon commencement.

Le film vaut le détour. Je conseille à ceux qui ne l’ont pas encore vu d’aller le voir au plus vite !

Vivement la suite et l’épisode VIII.

Star Wars Episode VII ‘The Force Awakens’ my verdict and review :

I spent a very good evening frankly. I liked the movie. After that it’s true that this movie inspires itself very much from episode IV ‘A New Hope’ we have to say that but i haven’t been disappointed sincerely. It’s a different story, there are new characters, former characters and many surprises. There’s some winks, some humor, some emotion, some action. All the actors (tresses) play well, landscapes, stage sets, scenery, decorations, costumes, camera plans are really great, various and well executed. Star Wars codes have been respected it’s essential and that’s a good thing. It’s a 1st Episode of a new trilogy. The movie isn’t perfect but not bad, it’s a good new beginning.

This movie really worth it. I advise all people who haven’t seen this movie to go to see it quickly !

I can’t wait and awaiting the following Episode VIII.
