Eurimages movie “La Grande Bellezza” wins Academy Award

“La Grande Bellezza” – a project supported by Eurimages, the Council of Europe’s Cinema Support Fund – has won this year’s academy award for best foreign language film.

In a tribute to his great countryman Federico Fellini, director Paolo Sorrentino lets Roman journalist, socialite and bon-vivant Jep Gambardella, who has grown old while searching for the Great Beauty in between the poles of everyday blah-blah and aestheticism, share his musings about the past and the present.

The Italian-French co-production has also been awarded several prizes in Europe (European Film Prize 2013; Nastro d’Argento; Golden Globe Awards 2014; British Academy Film Awards 2014).
