Rome: Italian actress and long-time Hollywood star Sophia Loren is set to return to the big screen in a short film directed by her son, which they are shooting in Naples this week.
Loren, 78, will star in her son Edoardo Ponti's adaptation of Jean Cocteau's one-person play The Human Voice, which charts the breakdown of a woman who is left by her lover.
Wearing a cream suit and a polka dot scarf, Loren drew crowds of onlookers to watch her film scenes on the streets of Naples, the city she grew up in.
The French play has been translated into Italian, much of it in the Neapolitan dialect, according to media reports. Filming is set to last about a month and will take place in Rome and Naples.
