Ornella receives top award at local film fest

ITALIAN actress Ornella Muti received an Actor's Mission Award at Slovakia's Art Film Festival in the western Slovak spa town of Trenčianske Teplice on June 28.

Awarded every year, the Actor's Mission is given to actors who have influenced the thinking, lifestyles and values of their generation.

Muti, born in 1955, was greeted by hundreds of fans at the ceremony, saying: "Film is my life. I was 14 when I first started to act. I am who I am thanks to the fact that the directors, great personalities themselves, gave me a chance."

Muti's memorial plaque was placed in Trenčianske Teplice's Bridge of Fame next to a row of Slovak and international actors such as her Italian countryman Franco Nero.
