Personal Quote:

Right now, Italian society is expressing a sort of familiarity with reality and that is also reflected in films. I share Brecht's opinion that that artists should always be one step ahead of the public. Unfortunately, in Italy we try to fulfill the public's needs. See more »

Trivia:

Member of the 'Official Competition' jury at the 67th Venice International Film Festival in 2010. See more »

Trademark:

The constant theme of his movies is the escape from the problems of the modern world. His characters often smoke joints or smuggle drugs. Most of his movies include a soccer match. Almost always casts Diego Abatantuono; frequently casts Claudio Bisio, Ugo Conti, Gigio Alberti.
