Nanni Moretti

Giovanni (Nanni) Moretti (born August 19, 1953) is an Italian film director. He is known internationally for his films Caro diario (Dear Diary) and La stanza del figlio (The Son's Room), the latter of which won the 2001 Palme D'Or. His other work has not been widely seen outside Italy, but within his country Moretti is well known as a maker of wryly humorous and eccentric films, usually starring himself—qualities for which he has been called "the Italian Woody Allen", though unlike Allen, Moretti often bases his films on his actual life. He is often cited as the most influential Italian director of the late 20th century.

Moretti is also an outspoken political leftist; in 2002 he organized massive street protests against the government of Silvio Berlusconi.

He lives in Rome, where he is co-owner of a small movie theater, Nuovo Sacher.
