A close associate of Enrico Berlinguer's communist party, Scola's politics remained firmly on the left and he explored France's revolutionary history in the 1982 classic "That Night in Varennes".More than a dozen of his films were joint French-Italian productions and several French actors, including the internationally renowned Jean-Louis Trintignant, starred in his films.Scola enhanced his reputation as a cinema master with the 1974 "We All Loved Each Other So Much," a comedy-drama about the post-war lives of three partisans fighting for the liberation of Italy and in love with the same woman.His films won several awards, with "A Special Day" picking up France's Cesar for best foreign film and Mastroianni winning the best actor at Cannes for the 1970 "Dramma della gelosia" ("Drama of Jealousy").
