Synopsis

Anthony Minghella, the writer and director behind films like Truly Madly Deeply, The English Patient and The Talented Mr Ripley, here explores his own work and the art of film-making. He offers candid commentary and fascinating insights with chapters on subjects from the practical - 'Writing' or 'The Business of Film' - to the philosophical - 'Structure' or 'Theories, Poetry and Mortality'.With a preface by Sydney Pollack, this book is essential for admirers of the director's work, or indeed for anyone enthusiastic about cinema in general. Minghella on Minghella is an opportunity to know what went on behind the camera - and the eyes - of one of the genre's greatest modern practitioners.

Anthony Minghella grew up above his Italian parents' cafe on the Isle of Wight. He studied and then taught at The University of Hull where he began to write. His prize-winning plays appeared in the theatre, on radio and television. His debut feature film, which he wrote and directed, Truly Madly Deeply, was a huge hit with audiences everywhere, and each of his subsequent pictures has seen him grow in ambition, stature and acclaim. The English Patientwon the Academy Award for Best Picture, the BAFTA Award for Best Film and Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture (Drama). With his later films - including The Talented Mr Ripleyand his monumental adaptation of Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain - he became one of the country's best loved directors.
