Paolo Sorrentino

Paolo Sorrentino

Paolo Sorrentino (born May 31, 1970) is an Italian film director and screenwriter. He was born in Naples.

Sorrentino's first film as screenwriter, Polvere di Napoli, was released in 1998. He began directing several short movies, like L'amore non ha confini, in 1998, and La notte lunga, in 2001. His debut with a long feature is One Man Up (L'uomo in più), awarded with the Nastro D'Argento for the best young director.

He achieved international recognition in 2004 for his stylish thriller, The Consequences of Love (Le conseguenze dell'amore). The film, which explores the mindset of a lonely businessman being used as a pawn by the Mafia, won many awards and was nominated for the Palme D'Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

Sorrentino's next feature, The Family Friend (L'amico di famiglia), was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in May and the London Film Festival in October 2006. It tells the story of a malicious septuagenarian loan-shark who develops a fixation with the beautiful daughter of one of his customers. Sorrentino made his acting debut with a cameo appearance in Nanni Moretti's film The Caiman (Il caimano), which was also shown at the 2006 London Film Festival.

Sorrentino's latest film, Il Divo, is a dramatised biopic of Giulio Andreotti, the controversial Italian politician. The feature, which won the Prix du Jury at Cannes Film Festival, sees Sorrentino reunited with The Consequences of Love star, Toni Servillo, who plays the part of Andreotti.

As of January 2009, Sorrentino is working on the screenplay for a film version of Niccolò Ammaniti's Ti prendo e ti porto via (Steal You Away).

Variety reported in May 2009 that his new film, This Must Be The Place, will mark the English-language feature debut of Italian filmmaker. The plot of his latest work will centre around a middle-aged wealthy rock star, played by two time academy award winner Sean Penn, who becomes bored in his retirement and takes on the quest of finding his father’s executioner, an ex-Nazi war criminal who is a refugee in the U.S. The film is based on a script co-written by Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello and This Must Be The Place is scheduled to be released in 2010.
