The art of cinema recounted in first person by Bernardo Bertolucci. Through a editing that articulates his declarations and thoughts in a flow of intense feelings, psychological introspection, anecdotes and visions, we are offered an insight into the identity of an authentic and extraordinary practitioner of the art of mise-en-scène. It took the authors two years of work, delving with patience and enthusiasm into over three hundred hours of library footage from archives all over the world, to complete their film essay Bertolucci on Bertolucci.
