TEHRAN, Sept. 29 (Mehr News Agency) - Flocks of France-based Iranians attended a ceremony at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris on Sept. 28 to praise Ezzatollah Entezami, the titan of stage and screen of their homeland.
Iranian journalist and film critic Hushang Golmakani, who centered his book "Master Actor" on Entezami, delivered a speech at the event the Iranian Ambassador to France Ali Ahani and Iranian envoy at the UNESCO Ahmad Jalali also attended.
"Entezami is the most acclaimed actor in Iranian cinema since he lives his roles rather than playing," Golmakani said.
He called the actor one of the symbols in the history of Iran's cinema, theater, and culture.
The 82-year-old Entezami also gave a brief account of his career, saying "I have acted in 44 feature-length movies over 65 years."
Entezami considered the ceremony as the glorification of Iranian culture and identity.
Iranian director Dariush Mehrjuii was to deliver a speech at the event, but he was busy with making a new film and failed to attend the ceremony.
