Story: The documentary film by Daniele Ceccarini and Francesco Tassara tells the prolific career of Sergio Martino, one of the few directors of Italian cinema to have crossed almost all cinematographic genres with elegance and versatility (the biographies speak of 66 directories, 44 screenplays, 5 films from production manager) and which reached the pinnacle of his artistic production between the fortunate seventies and eighties, the golden age of Italian cinema, always addressing a popular audience with numerous films that have become cult today; a director once snubbed by national critics but beloved by the audience and by today's "foreign" directors, tightrope walkers of postmodern cinema that crosses genres, such as Tarantino. The documentary recounts his career by historicizing filmography, a unique season, when Italian cinema was a big industry, the second in the West after the American one. Through the direct stories of the director and the contribution of actors, friends and collaborators, memories of work and life are brought together offering an unprecedented overview of an exceptional and elegant author.
