From the critically acclaimed director Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) and Walter Fasano comes this unique portrait of maestro filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci. Sifting through hundreds of hours of archive material and drawing almost exclusively on filmed interviews with Bertolucci in Italy, France, the USA and the UK, we are given a fascinating, frank and revealing insight into the great man, from winning poetry awards in 1962 right up to the present day, discussing his most recent film (Me and You, released earlier this year). At film festivals and conferences, in TV studios and on various film sets, Bertolucci discusses his influences, his feelings about the state of Italian and world cinema, his likes and dislikes of great films and great filmmakers and talks about the philosophies and ideas that underpin his creative impulses as well as his life and the developing and enduring art of his extraordinary canon of movies.
