RITRATTO DI MIO PADRE
directed by Maria Sole Tognazzi
The idea of making a documentary on Ugo Tognazzi came about from the desire to tell the life, loves, passions, successes and delusions of the great actor twenty years after his death. But also to reveal, for the first time, his hidden and secret sides and his lesser known work that nobody had ever talked about before. Ugo Tognazzi was irritating, jeering, lazy and exuberant: he loved life and his pleasures, but he also knew how to be steadfast, courageous and a fighter. He always presented his true self, without excuses, justifications or embarrassment. All this is corroborated by the numerous interviews he gave throughout his long career and by the interviews given by the friends and family who knew him well.
