PORTRAIT OF MY FATHER - UGO TOGNAZZI
One of the greatest Italian actors to come out of the 20th century. A bold and modern figure in his stylistic versatility, Ugo Tognazzi rather unusually stands as a common thread linking masters of Italian comedy such as Mario Monicelli, Luciano Salce, and Dino Risi, and sophisticated, provocative filmmakers like Marco Ferreri and Bernardo Bertolucci (whose film Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man earned the actor the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1981). This vibrant portrait traces over 4 decades of the brilliant career of Italian actor Ugo Tognazzi, who became internationally known in 1978 for his performance in BIRDS OF A FEATHER.
