MONTE-CARLO, MONACO--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Imperia Entertainment, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IMPN) announced today favorable audience reaction and press coverage of its special European public screening of "Say it in Russian." The film had its pre-opening night in Monte-Carlo and was a main event screening for the 2008 48th Monte-Carlo Television Festival.

Present were actress Agata Gotova, who stars in the lead role of the film as Daria Larina, the daughter of a rich Russian mafia oligarch who falls in love with an American in Paris. Actor Rade Serbedzija plays the part of the Russian mafia oligarch Raf Larin in the film. Gotova's character Daria falls in love with the American Andrew Lamont, played by actor Steven Brand, but Andrew soon finds on a visit to Moscow that he is involved with a family that is more complicated and dangerous than he ever imagined. The film also stars Academy Award Winner Faye Dunaway, who plays the role of Jacqueline, a Paris socialite who acts as the matchmaker for Andrew and Daria. The Avant-Premiere was extremely well received by the screening audience and there were very positive comments about the acting, the cinematography, the location shots, and the quality of the film's musical score.
