Paolo Sorrentino – one of the best Italian Directors. His films are intelligent, full of dark sarcasm and vivid images for what the Director called the modern Fellini.
Screenwriter and Director, most famous for its series “Young dad”, made his feature debut in 2001 with dark dramatic film “the Extra man”. But the international breakthrough came only in 2008, thanks to the work “Amazing”, a political satire, which won the jury prize at the Cannes film festival. In 2011, Sorrentino first appeared on the American cinematic scene with the tape “Where ever you are”. And in 2013-m received the “Oscar” in the category “Best foreign language film” for the film “the Great beauty”.
Sorrentino is so often compared with the legendary Federico Fellini. They’re similar in style and theme, in their ribbons abound surreal and sensual images, the erosion of moral values through satire, bizarre characters with strange features, existential longing, as well as typical digressions from the narrative in the name of thematic diversity.
While all these things characterize the work of the Italian, perhaps the most distinctive feature of Sorrentino is his instinctive ability to visualize your movies in the artist’s eyes – with bright colors and a rich history – and at the same time to write scripts through the pen of the novelist.
