Personal Quote:

If you look at the Earth from space, you see a slice of desert that divides the First from the Third World. I am incredibly drawn to what lies beneath that, where contrasts are stronger but more sincere. I like creating protagonists out of people who are anything but: regaling two little boys shots worthy of a John Wayne epic. See more »

Trivia:

Studied at the Accademia del Piccolo Teatro in Milan. See more »

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.
