Personal Quote:

I am not interested in any filmmaker. I am not even interested in my own films, except for a couple of moments: the failed self-crucifixion in Salomè (1972), and the burnt, torn film in Our Lady of the Turks (1968) as a parody of recollection.

Trivia:

Had a son with Giuliana Rossi, Alessandro, who died at the age of 5. See more »
