Veronica Lazăr (16 October 1938 - 8 June 2014) was a Romanian born Italian actress.

She made her debut as Marlon Brando's deceased wife in Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris (1972), and also appeared in some of the director's subsequent films, La Luna (1979), The Sheltering Sky (1990), Besieged (1998) and Me and You (2012). Lazăr is probably best known for her role as the demonic Mater Tenebrarum in Dario Argento's Inferno (1980), and she later appeared in Argento's The Stendhal Syndrome (1996). Her other films included Lucio Fulci's The Beyond (1981), Michelangelo Antonioni's Identification of a Woman (1982), Towards Evening (1990), The Prince's Manuscript (2000) and Ginostra (2002).

She married Italian actor Adolfo Celi in 1966 and had two children with him, director Leonardo Celi and actress Alessandra Celi. Her last role was in Bertolucci's Me and You (2012).

Biography

Le premier rôle de Veronica Lazăr au cinéma fut celui d'un cadavre et pas des moindres, celui de la femme morte du personnage Paul (joué par Marlon Brando), qui l'oblige à arpenter un immeuble parisien dans Le Dernier Tango à Paris (1972). Bernardo Bertolucci la fait ensuite tourner dans La Luna en 1979.

On la retrouve dans deux films de Dario Argento : Inferno où elle joue la mère des Ténèbres et Le Syndrome de Stendhal où elle joue la mère de Marie (l'artiste français). Lucio Fulci la fait tourner dans son mythique L'au-delà, où sa mort est hideuse.

Elle joue également dans l'adaptation au cinéma du roman de Paul Bowles, Un thé au Sahara, ce qui lui permet de retrouver Bernardo Bertolucci, dans Identification d'une femme et Par-delà les nuages de Michelangelo Antonioni. Elle est la fille d'un militant communiste et elle-même, membre du parti communiste italien.

The film tells the short life of the great Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi. A noble, his birth's in Recanati, and soon Giacomo learns to study Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic and English in the rich library of his palace that his father built. Giacomo, however, possessing an inquisitive, restless spirit, would like to know to travel abroad to widen his views and enrich his knowledge, as was usual for European landed gentry in the 19th century. Still this desire of his lies at odds with his parents (his father, while possessing a sensibility akin to his, is too bound by the social conventions and the expectations tied to his role as 'Pater Familias'; his mother, on the other hand, is too busy shoring up the household declining fortunes to even care about intellectual aspirations). So the poet begins to write his first works, reflecting about human condition, coming to the conclusion that unhappiness is a costant factor of human existence, and that in life there is no way to remedy this problem. In 1820s, Leopardi can finally leave the native Recanati, and travels to Rome and Florence where, however, his high expectations of intellectual rewards and public recognition are frustrated. Suffering from repeated instances of unrequited love: chiefly that he felt towards the Countess Fanny Targioni Tozzetti, contribute to Leopardi's negative view of life and human experience. Finally he moves to Naples, where a physical decadence led him to death.
