Encyclopedia > Georges Corraface

European actor Georges Corraface has an international career in film and television, after many years in French theater - notably as a member of the famed Peter Brook Company. His movie credits include "To Tama", "Escape from L.A.", "La Pasion Turca", "Vive La Mariée", "Impromptu", "Christopher Columbus" and a feature film debut in "The Mahabharata". Outstanding television productions include “La Bicyclette Bleue", "L'Ete Rouge" and "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles". His multi-cultural background enables him to work extensively in French and Greek (his native languages), as well as in English, Spanish, German and Italian, with roles ranging from dramatic leads to eccentric characterizations. He is particularly popular in France, Greece and Spain, due to box office hits, critical acclaim, Best Actor Awards, and television celebrity. In 2005, he was named president of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

deseretnews.com - Movie review: Christopher Columbus: The Discovery | Deseret Morning News Web edition (370 words)
In its early scenes, Corraface plays Columbus as Indiana Jones, then, when he is refused the ships he desires to find a new route to the Indies, he becomes a brooding martyr.
As for Corraface, he merely poses, content to play Columbus as a hero whose crew lets him down.
He also has a mystic sense of when the wind will come up and, at one point — during the "Mutiny on the Bounty" sequence — is about to let himself be decapitated, until a rising wind convinces the crew he's not such a bad captain after all.
The Austin Chronicle Film Listings (461 words)
George Corraface, Marlon Brando, Robert Davi, Tom Selleck, Rachel Ward
What with all the recent hue and cry over the anniversary of that famous voyage by a lowly Genovesian cartographer, it should hardly come as a shock that Hollywood so readily jumped on the historical revisionist bandwagon.
Corraface's Columbus is a darkly handsome, square-jawed adventurer who -- when he's not busy pushing his rather flimsy case for discovery -- manages to seduce everything on two legs.
