Mario Sesti, the director, who is also film critic and journalist, met several times Bernardo Bertolucci for conversations published by “L’ espresso” and he made video interviews with him included in the DVD of Bertolucci films like The Sheltering Sky e The dreamers. After having recalled these meetings, happened during more than 30 years, the film shows, for the first time, the last conversation Sesti has had with Bertolucci. It took place about a year ago as part of a series dedicated to Cinema’ s Job. The great director tells the early success among international film critics and the admiration toward his films of the new american directors of the seventies. He recalls the adventure of choising Marlon Brando for Last Tango on Paris and the faboulous night of the Academy Awards won by The Last Emperor. The film explores great moments of his whole biography and unforgettable career with serene nostalgia and touching feelings.
