Bellucci: "show films in their original versions"


Italian diva Monica Bellucci has called for films to be shown in their original version in Italian cinemas.
At the moment the common practise is to professionally dub films into Italian, rather than showing them with the original soundtrack and Italian subtitles.

The actress made the comments during her appearance at an event for the pay TV service, SKY Cinema, which is putting on a tribute to Bellucci in October on the SKY Cinema 3 Channel.
Monica praised the organisation for showing films in their original versions, and added "this is something we need to do in our cinemas in Italy. It is ridiculous that Italians don't know the real voices of Dustin Hoffman, Nicole Kidman and Al Pacino. Italy is the only country in Europe that does this".
The star is in Venice for the presentation of Terry Gilliam's new film, The Brothers Grimm [+see also:

, which is being shown in the main competition. She plays Queen Mirror in the work starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger in the title roles.
