Audrey Hepburn - Immagini di un'attrice by Margherita Lamesta Krebel BOOK LAUNCH

Hovering in a dozen or so films but linked by a thematic theme thread growing towards that first-rate interpretative maturity, conquered by the diva Audrey Hepburn, this debut book is not only a broad recognition of the actress's cinematographic activity but also a in-depth, rigorous and personal examination of the specific characteristics pertaining to cinematographic acting.

Suitable not only for an initiated audience but also for those who approach with simple and genuine flair at the universe of Cinema, this essay comes from the heart and points straight to the heart. Clear is the love for the living material of performance. The reader is captured by a vibrant and overwhelming empathy that flows at high speed all in one breath.
An absolutely unprecedented picture of an actress of incomparable charm and talent, so much to be proclaimed in 1999 by the American Film Institute, "the third greatest actress ever" after Bette Davis and the Katherine Hepburn.
