Vanzina to Pupi Avati: “Film and culture? Too many masterpieces announced”

The screenwriter replies to the director Pupi for whom “70% of the films have nothing to do with culture but only with commerce, the market and fashions”: “Many films that start out as pure entertainment turn out to be great films that make culture and also change the history of cinema”

“The cinema it is an industry of entertainment; sometimes it becomes culture. But it is never in advance. First you have to make films, then you see: many films that start out as pure entertainment turn out to be great films that make culture and also change the history of cinema. While it happens that movie which start off as great cultural films often aren’t, much less make the history of cinema… There are too many announced masterpieces: this is the defect of Italian cinema”. Henry Vanzinascreenwriter and director, heard from AdnKronos, thus replies to the director Pupi Avatifor whom “not everything in cinema is culture: at least 70% of the films that are shot and produced have nothing to do with culture, if anything with commerce, the market, fashions”.
