L'UOMO CHE RIDE – SERGIO CORBUCCI
by Goia Magrini and Roberto Meddi – 2013 – 54′ – documentary
Sergio Corbucci was one of the most prolific and eclectic directors of Italian cinema: in 40 years of career he made about 70 films of all the genres, from “peplum” to horror, from comedy to detective story, from musical film to western, the genre that he perhaps preferred and in which he is considered a master as Sergio Leone.
Always attentive to the tastes of the public that rewarded him with record income, Corbucci never gave up on a meticulous professionalism.
Based on the unpublished autobiography of Sergio Corbucci, the documentary traces his human and professional history using materials from the Istituto Luce’s repertoire and private amateur photos and films, as well as testimonies of his friends and collaborators, and especially of his wife Nori, who shared with him 31 years of life from their first meeting in 1959.
