Screenings of film 'insulting' Benito Mussolini's granddaughter postponed
London, September 7 (ANI): The screenings of a film that allegedly contains insulting remarks about Benito Mussolini's granddaughter has been postponed.
The distributors of 'Francesca' have agreed to cancel screenings pending a court decision on Alessandra Mussolini's complaint.
The film allegedly refers to Alessandra, 45, as a "bitch who wants to kill all the Romanians".
It screened twice at the Venice film festival, and was to have been shown in public cinemas in the area on Sunday and Monday.
Alessandra lodged a complaint against the film last week.
According to reports, a scene in the film is also said to show Francesca's father calling Verona Mayor Flavio Tosi the "s--- mayor" of the northern city.
Tosi has also taken legal action.
"The entire work will be defended as well as the author's freedom of expression," the Telegraph quoted Domenico Procacci, of the film's distributor Fandango, as having told the daily La Repubblica.
"We intend to release the film in its entirety at the end of October," he said.
He, however, told the Corriere della Sera that "if the judge obliges us to modify something I think we will find a solution with the director." (ANI)
