A "Cineasta totale"
Gianfranco Mingozzi's work has evolved on different lines, from documentaries and fiction, full and short length films, from cinema to television, from an optical view that gives evidence of a permitted bulimia operation. Nourishing his works of fantasy, using a realistic documentary approach, Mingozzi adds, in his most successful films, a sort of Unitarian theme, evident in the desire, example 'Cineasta', to be present in his time - his historical films are proof of this, where he doesn't give in to the figurative complaisance that often characterizes this style, but on the contrary faces the themes with a documentary glance that transfers the problems of the past into the prospect of the presento To this is added a firm balanced sentiment between the private and the public, among the private references and political judgement, involving the most vivid sensibility and the most meditated criticismo Therefore in a multi form work and deeply Unitarian, even under its appearance hetero genetically, Gianfranco Mingozzi finds miraculous balance equilibrium in confluence between reality and imagination. From the 'documented point of view' dear to Jean Vigo, giving his work a sort of permanent apprehension between realistic and fantasy. From the documentary to fiction, in an active constant research, always escaping in front of everything that risks being uncertain, Mingozzi inscribes to a TRAETTORIA among the most originai in the contemporary Italian cinema. Mingozzi explores ali that the cinematographic expressions offer in its numerous aspects to the Cineasti constantly deferring and re -proposing the motives. He's a spy, in our time, seizing the reality and reproducing it in a kaleidoscope without end.
