Doane continued, “That’s quite a resource to have in the family,” to which Edoardo replied, “If my mother happens to be such an amazing actress and I happen to be a director, I would be an idiot if I did not cast my mother in my movies”. The movie plot focuses on a friendship between Momo, a 12-year-old Muslim immigrant from Senegal, who is a Holocaust survivor and is so beautifully acted by Ibrahima Gueye, in his first-ever acting role. Loren said, “He was really like somebody that has always been in this business. I think he was born for it. I think so”, which is quite a huge compliment when coming from such a legendary screen actress who has played opposite some of Hollywood’s most famous ever actors, including Cary Grant, Paul Newman, Clark Gable and, Marlon Brando. Doane also enquired of Ponti, “Did you second-guess at all, putting this completely untested actor next to your mom in these leading roles?”, to which he replied, “Thank God I didn’t! To make sure that he felt comfortable with my mother, we all actually, during the shooting, lived together under the same roof, so he could see her the way that I see her.” Doane then asked Ponti, “So, Ibrahima would get up in the morning, and Sophia Loren would be in the kitchen saying, before we shoot, ‘I’ll make you breakfast’?” “Correct, correct,” Ponti said. “Because that was the only way to create the right bond for them to know each other.” Sophia Loren had for ten years just dedicated her time to her family, until the right part, with the right director, came along, and now, here it is, with “The Life Ahead” hitting your screens on November 13th on Netflix. _______________________________________________________________________ Thank you for taking the time to read this news article “Sophia Loren Returns to our screens Aged 86”.
