Italian actress Stefania Sandrelli and Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki will both be honored with Golden Lions at the Venice Film Festival on August 31. Apparently whoever wrote the article I linked to below failed to read my mind to discover I'm much more interested in hearing about Miyazaki than Sandrelli, but what can you do? Miyazaki, as many of you know, is behind such amazing animated feats as Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle. Sandrelli has appeared in several films, including Partner and The Conformist.
