A Round Table dedicated to Sacha Guitry
«On stage or in front of the camera, Guitry is always – even, especially – himself, despite makeup and wigs. The dialogues are made by himself (does a Guitry’s touch exist? Of course it does, he was the French version of Lubitsch, according to Truffaut), as well as the elegance of the aphorism, the aristocratic posture, the unmistakable style, the scenic taste, even when it comes to real, recognizable, imitable characters. As if, in that body and in those words, there were always together past and present, History, reality and theater. »

Giulio Sangiorgio, Il sollievo di essere al mondo, BFM 42 Catalogue

Talking about Sacha Guitry is stimulating, and it will also be fascinating to listen to those who have studied and delved into his way of making cinema and simply being himself.
The Round Table is held by Giulio Sangiorgio (FilmTv director), Emiliano Morreale (La Repubblica film critic) and Edgardo Franzosini (writer, author of the afterword of Memorie di un baro by Sacha Guitry, ed. Adelphi, 2022).
