‘Quattro volte’ wins Europa prize

Italian film to receive boost to release

LONDON — The Europa Cinemas network of exhibs has selected Italo pic “Le Quattro volte,” which centers on the life of an old shepherd in Calabria, as the best European film in the Directors’ Fortnight section at Cannes.

The kudo, the Europa Cinemas Label, commits the exhibitors, which run 817 theaters in 42 countries, to extend the length of the pic’s runs and to additional promotion.

The jury of four exhibs said Michelangelo Frammartino’s pic was “a beautifully evocative, humorous and subtle look at life and nature in deepest rural Italy. Never didactic or sentimental, the director takes creative risks and manages to pull them off.” Sold internationally by the Coproduction Office, the film stars Giuseppe Fuda, Nazareno Timpano and Bruno Timpano.

A Vivo Film production, the film was co-produced by Essential Filmproduktion (Germany), Invisible Film (Italy) and Ventura Film (Switzerland).

The Europa Cinemas Label is also awarded to pics in the Venice Days section in Venice, the Panorama section in Berlin and at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
