Antalya to host Connie Nielsen
ISTANBULDanish actress Connie Nielsen will be one of the guests to be welcomed at the 53rd Antalya Film Festival, where she will attend the opening night.
The film’s first screening will be on Oct. 18 at 12 p.m. at the Antalya Cultural Center (AKM).
Danish actress Nielsen was first known in “The Devil’s Advocate” in 1997 and later gained international attention for her role in Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” in 2000.
In 2014, Nielsen appeared in Lars Von Trier’s film “Nymphomaniac.”
In Roberto Ando’s thriller “The Confessions,” finance leaders from the G8 countries gather in a posh German hotel to hash things out. Roberto Salus, acted by Toni Servillo, is a guest of honor, and on his first night there he hears the confession of International Monetary Fund head Daniel Roche (Daniel Auteuil). When this bigwig is found dead by suicide the next morning, the intrigue begins.
The 53rd Antalya Film Festival will be held between Oct. 16 and 23. Along with film screenings, there will also be talks, signing days with actors, concerts, workshops, exhibition and social responsibility stands during the event.
The festival’s other guests from Hollywood will be French actor Gerard Depardieu and French actress Audrey Tautou.
