Ayelet Zurer and Rade Sherbedgia Exclusive Video Interviews – FUGITIVE PIECES

     May 1, 2008

Opening tomorrow, in limited release, is “Fugitive Pieces.” The film was the opening night movie at last year’s Toronto Film Festival and it garnered Rade Sherbedgia the prize for Best Actor at the Rome Film Festival.

If you aren’t familiar with the film, “Fugitive Pieces” tells the story of Jakob Beer (Stephen Dillane), a man whose life is transformed by his childhood experiences during WWII. As a child in Poland he is orphaned then saved by a compassionate Greek archeologist (Rade Sherbedgia.) Over the course of his life, he attempts to deal with the losses he has endured. Through his writing, and then through the discovery of true love, Jakob is ultimately freed from the legacy of his past.

The film is based on the international bestselling novel byAnne Michaels and it’s been adapted & directed by Jeremy Podeswa.

So to help promote the movie, I recently interviewed Ayelet Zurer and Rade Sherbedgia. Both of them had a lot to say on the making of the film and what they have coming up. Also, I interviewed Ayelet before it was announced that she got cast in “Angels and Demons,” hence why I didn’t ask anything about it.
