Commedia all'italiana

DINO RISI (1916-2008), Italian film director born in Milan. With Mario Monicelli, Luigi Comencini, Nanni Loy and Ettore Scola, he was one of the masters of Commedia all'italiana. Dino Risi studied medicine and later became a psychiatrist; he started his career in cinema as an assistant director to cinema figures such as Mario Soldati and Alberto Lattuada. Later he began directing his own films and was credited with giving early opportunities to future acting stars such as Sophia Loren and Vittorio Gassman. His biggest hits were Poveri ma belli (Poor, But Handsome), followed by Una vita difficile (A Difficult Life); Il sorpasso (The Easy Life); Opiate '67 or, in a cut version, I mostri (15 From Rome); and Profumo di Donna (Scent Of A Woman), starring Vittorio Gassman, which was remade by Martin Brest starring Al Pacino in 1992. In 2002, he was awarded the Golden Lion for Ligetime Achievements at the Venice Film Festival. His son Marco is also a film director.
