Cannes, April 17 - Italian actress Valeria
Golino on Friday presented her directorial debut, 'Miele', at
the Cannes Film Festival.
Best known to English-speaking audiences for roles in Rain
Man and the Hot Shots! films, Golino is representing Italy in
the Un Certain Regard category, which runs parallel to the
top-prize Palme d'Or competition and aims to promote rising
talent.
"This little film has brought me to Cannes, I love it (the
film)," Golino told ANSA.
"I'm very nervous and I can't quite enjoy this moment," she
said on the famous red carpet.
"I can't quite describe my state of mind, I'd like to be
calmer, proud, but it's just the way I am. I'll be happy in a
month's time," she said.
The cast of 'Miele', which hit Italian screens last month,
was beside her: acclaimed Italian actors Jasmine Trinca, Vinicio
Marchioni and Carlo Cecchi.
Golino's first feature will have its international premiere
Friday night.
"I'm also proud to be in the same festival with other
Italians who are great friends and great artists," she added.
Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino is in the running for
the Palme d'Or with 'La Grande Bellezza' (The Great Beauty) .
Golino, born to an Italian father and a Greek mother in
Naples, broke onto Rome's film scene after she was discovered
by Italian film icon Lina Wertmueller, who cast her in A Joke of
Destiny (1983) when she was still in highschool.
Three years later she won the Best Actress award at the
Venice Film Festival for Storia d'Amore.
'Miele' is the story of a young Italian woman who devotes
her life to alleviating the pain of others, "even when they make
dramatic decisions," according to the film synopsis.
The Cannes Film Festival started on Wednesday and runs till
May 26.
