Israeli movie picked for Tokyo Film Fest
After screening at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, Israeli director Udi Aloni's latest film, Forgiveness, has been chosen to participate in the Tokyo International Film Festival, one of the most prestigious in the world.
Forgiveness is the story of an Israeli-American who decides to return to Israel and is committed to a mental institution that stands on the allegedly haunted grounds of Deir Yassin, an Arab village attacked by a Jewish militia in April 1948. Although the movie won't be released commercially until September 21, it will be screened at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center on Thursday as part of the Jerusalem International Film Festival. On Friday, philosopher Slavoj Zizek will give a lecture on the film in Jerusalem. The film will also be screened at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque on Sunday, with a lecture by Zizek to follow.- Aliza Appelbaum
Nielsen and husband No. 5 make it legal
Brigitte Nielsen can call it legal now. The model and actress married her fifth husband, Mattia Dessi, on Saturday - 17 months after a ceremony that wasn't legal because she hadn't finished divorcing No. 4, People magazine reported on its website. The ceremony last year between Nielsen, 42, and Dessi, a 28-year-old Italian former model, was "more like an official engagement," said Nielsen's manager, Luigi Balduini.
They officially tied the knot in Malta, People reported. Their earlier ceremony took place in the Dominican Republic, while Nielsen was still married to former racecar driver Raoul Meyer.
Nielsen has appeared in such movies as Rocky IV and Beverly Hills Cop II. She was previously married to Sylvester Stallone and has a son with former NFL star Mark Gastineau. - AP
