Biography of Italian director Mimmo Cattarinich
13 December 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

i think it is interesting to know the biography of the Italian artist who directed this movie "piccole labbra". Mimmo(Domenico) Cattarinich was born in Rome and since 39 years his study overlooks largo Federico Fellini (nearby Veneto street in Rome). He is one of the historical leaders of the Italian photography. As photographer his history begins in the half of the fifties in the Dino De Laurentis film studios. At seventeen years old he interrupted the studies of accounting to follow the great myth of the cinema from near. He began to work as assistant of dark room and subsequently as photographer of scene, with different directors like:Mario Bava,Blasetti,Bolognini,Lizzani, Sergio Leone, Pasolini,Antonioni Fellini,Almodovar,Benigni and others more. "Piccole Labbra" (Little Lips) is his only movie as director.
