INFIDEL REVIEW....' Stelio Savante (“Ugly Betty,” “Running for Grace,” “Bernie the Dolphin”) as Pierre Barthes, who helps with couple from the inside, and every minute on stage, for him, is serious business.  Watch for him to get big (in Movieland) in a hurry.'

(Amazon) Once We Were Slaves: 'Stelio Savante's career has traversed the globe not just in terms of location but also in cultural and psychological portraits that he brings to life on the screen and stage.
