Ten actresses have denounced in a television program sexual abuse from a director and Italian producer, Fausto Brizzi, who denied Monday any inappropriate behavior.

The Italian filmmaker, who turns 49 on Wednesday, rejected the accusations, saying he had always had consensual sex.

These ten actresses, including two young people appearing without masking their faces, accused him in front of the cameras of the satirical television program “the hyenas”, to have resorted to his “power” as a director to impose touching and sexual favors.

Fausto Brizzi began his career as a screenwriter before moving to 2007 behind the camera with the comedy “Notte prima degli esami” (the night before the exams), which was the subject of a remake in France under the title “Nos 18 years old “, directed by Frédéric Berthe.
