Personal Quote:

The themes of my films are always more or less the same: the relationship between man and society, between man and power. And I've tried to reflect a little of Italian life of the past fifty years. I'e tried to shoe, using Italy as the context,all the problems that come from the oppression of people by power, whether it's economic power, military power, political power, or the power of the Mafia.
