"By reinventing the western, popular genre par excellence, Sergio Leone changed the face of cinema. The public immediately made a triumphal welcome to his films while the critics did not understand that the West no longer needed to be American as it was now anchored in the universal imagination. Sergio Leone is a great filmmaker of the imagination.
As popular as an experimental, discoverer of Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson, Leone is now adulated by filmmakers around the world as a huge formalist.
The exhibition and the book dedicated by La Cinémathèque française and Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna propose to enter the laboratory of a genius creator and discover the biographical springs of his work.
Composed of filmmaker's texts, testimonials from his collaborators and critical essays, illustrated with filming photos and posters, this book explores the many facets of a filmmaker who has founded his cinema on his childhood dreams. "
Frédéric Bonnaud, managing director of La Cinémathèque française.
