Storie di Cinema intervista Ninni Bruschetta (05/04/2016)


Ninni Bruschetta has reached the fame,
the consecration, the popularity, the sympathy he deserved,
with Boris, in which he plays, the television series, in which he plays,
Duccio Patanè, the director of photography
with the taste of the blow, of the strip,
of the line of coke. It’s difficult to make people laugh on
a director of photography because the technical problems
of the direction of cinematography are hardly subject of laughs. The movie is a movie about the commonplaces
of the Roman drama, fiercely anti Rai, “Come on, we’re making Ben Hur”
which has become “Come on, here we’re not making Kubrick”, “It takes a little of cunt”, go to the Christmas holiday
with the Caste, “When I make television
I don’t do a shit” is a movie on the commonplace supported by the very good Ninni,
by Pannofino and by Caterina Guzzanti. The key scene of the movie that
Ninni recalls in his book, on page 41, that has made crazy the 100.000
funny friends of Facebook, is the first, a scene from the first episode
of the third season. The scene takes place in the hall
of a television center, not too far
from we’re shooting, and a very cute
and very cool hostess tells him with great nonchalance while he’s serving himself in a,
in a… in a buffet: “Master, would you like
a little of cocaine?” And Ninni said to himself: “Are they my fans
or are they all cocaine addicts?” Master.
Would you like a little of cocaine? But are you serious? Sure. But why not!
Once in a while, no? Then follow me. I’m very attached
to a chapter that is entitled: “Duccio who are you” that initially is inspired
by the title of a, of one of the first issues of Diabolik that is “Diabolik who are you” but the really
important thing that tells is that Duccio is a
character… archetypical if I may to say
this word of the cinema, that is he’s an actor, he’s a
character not an actor, which has neither past
nor future. I quote explicitly
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern who are these two wonderful
characters of Hamlet on which then Tom Stoppard writes Rosencrantz and
Guildenstern are dead, just because they are
the actor’s representation, that is the suspension of the judgment and
the suspension of the life in the space time of the story. This is Duccio in my opinion.
