Auteur Watch - Paolo and Vittorio Taviani
I've heard of them! They're the Italian Coens. We started watching Good Morning, Babylon until it got too naughty... man! They're old! Proving once again that directing films is a lifelong struggle. Take Ridley Scott, for example. Poor guy's about 75 now with a new action flick coming out. As for the Tavianis, they got Caesar Must Die coming out. Smart title strategy, guys. If it's got Die in the title, Americans will flock to it, and it will save you from printing German posters. Grazi!
