Ava V. Gerlitz
Makeup Artist for Sophia Loren:
Capri Films Inc. (
Mediatrade / Equinox Entertainment
Sophia's second film to be shot
entirely in Canada. The first one was Angela,
filmed in Montreal, in
1976. Part of the film Courage
was also filmed in the Toronto area.
Sophia is directed by her son
Edoardo's first full-length movie.
Working with my mother is a beautiful experience. She puts love first, before anything. She's enhancing our movie with her warmth, love and good humour.
Edoardo Ponti, in Hello (30 oct 2001).
Una giornata particolare is my mother's film I like the most and it is that Loren, humble, defeated, unhappy I wanted in my film.
Edoardo Ponti, in TV Sorrisi e canzoni (28 sep 2002).
With an extremely light touch, first-time director Ponti-whose father is, of course, the legendary Italian producer Carlo Ponti-guides his mother through her 100th film. Remarkably, the age-defying Loren is made up to look older than her 68 years, yet her radiant beauty still shines through the darkened eyeshadow. She is one of the last of a dying breed, a true cinema goddess whose mere presence lights up a room or a film.
Paul Townend, Take One. (dec 2002)
In Between Strangers, debut film of her son Edoardo Ponti and her hundredth, the actress’ talent is confirmed. Sophia one and two, the symbol of eternal youth and serene acceptance of an artistic maturity, which is not afraid to flaunt its wrinkles.
Corriere della Sera (31 aug 2002)
"I'm very proud of what he's doing and how he's doing it. What came out of the film that he did was absolutely wonderful."
