Films are home movies of your past.
Producer Dino De Laurentiis
offered him the chance to direct "Hand Carved Coffins" based on a Truman Capote
work but Cimino turned it down; to date the project has not been produced.

All of these traits fit within the definition of the poetic realism film movement in France of the 1930s and through the war years, which probably accounts for a lot of Cimino's popularity in France.
