Katyn gesture should serve as example for Turkey

Other countries like Turkey could learn from Poland and Russia's joint commemoration of the victims of the Katyn massacre, writes the liberal paper La Stampa: "The number of those murdered was too large for the truth to remain concealed. The Poles knew only too well who was responsible for the massacre. In the Soviet Union, on the other hand, the government stubbornly continued to blame the Nazis - despite all the evidence and testimonies to the contrary. Now Poles and Russians have jointly commemorated the massacre. ... This seems incredible when one considers the very different conduct of Turkey, which insists on rejecting its international responsibility [for the massacres of the Armenians] and the stubbornness with which so many Europeans struggle against foreigners. It seems incredible but it's true. The gesture at Katyń is true progress for the nations."

Italian romantic comedy gets US remake

'The Last Kiss', directed by American filmmaker Tony Goldwyn, will open in Italian cinemas in November. It is the remake of an Italian film, 'L'Ultimo Baccio', directed by Gabriele Muccino, that came out in 2002. Lietta Tornabuoni sees "an Italian exception. It is very rare for Americans to do a remake of  an Italian film. ... This is not surprising since Italian cinema ... has too often concerned itself with society, or subjects dealing with politics or regional cultures. ... Artistic films, by their very nature, are impossible to reproduce. ... Gabriele Muccino's film, a young-at-heart romantic comedy, could mark the beginning of a different trend."
