Personal Quotes (1)

[when the brothers Taviani decided to become filmmakers] We walked into a movie theater called Cinema Italia, which no longer exists, and there was a film playing called Paisan (1946) that we had never heard of. (...) We had experienced the war as kids, and very deeply. But what we were seeing on screen made that reality so much clearer for us. This movie was telling us things about ourselves that we did not know. So we said to ourselves: 'If cinema has this strength, this power to reveal to ourselves our own truths, then we will make movies!' [Variety, 2016]
