INTERVIEW TO THE DIRECTOR
SC emissary: Why did you decide to make a non-commercial
movie in Hollywood (Masua), the hometown of leisure?
aren't you afraid that the setting of your movie could
be, let's say..., misunderstood?
GC: Well, Masua is an ideal set: the sea, beautiul
rocks and shadow in the afternoon. You know, even
in the past well-known directors chose these precipices
for their screenplays! I think Porto Flavia is a good
location for low-cost pulp movies like ours: the idea
behind Kill Bill was to follow a genre (trad+spit)
already exhisting, but never tried in Masua...
emissary: Don't you think that some scenes in
the movie could involve the youngest audience in too
dangerous games, not suitable for underage public?
GC: Well, yes, some scenes have been made by
professional stuntmen. Actually, difficulties are
popular and some spit in the mounting of the most
difficult parts will help the audiece indeed! Remember:
all the owners of the Warner Cad card will find two
twinkling spits and pop-corns in alle the stop-seats!
emissary: Can the spit be a commercial temptation,
or do you play with genres like a Tarantino of the
GC: True: spits make the movie more accessible
to a lot of people, even to those who don't love "pulp".
Spits are moments of reflection to break the involvement
of the action. Anyway, amusement is guarateed for
traditional movies lover !
emissary: Your debut opera was, I hope I'm not
mistaking, a fantasy movie. It drew inspiration from
a " disney cartoon": The Wall of Elves. Today it has
become a cult, but in cinemas, it was a flop. According
to you, why it was a success for the critics, but
a failure for the public?
to say the truth, in the first year we had good returns
at the box-office, and even a nomination at the Cus-cus
Festival in Carloforte. Actually, The Wall of Elves
is a countertrendency film, a remake of those '80
movies you don't see any longer in cinemas.What is
great, is the isolation of its position. I think that
the destiny of The Wall of Elfs is to stay in the
collections of most affectionate cinephiles...
emissary: Is it true that you recruit Vincenzo
Carcangiu on an internet chat-line?
I read his cv and then I decided to sign him up. as
his contract by the Metro Goldwin Pibiri had temporary
expired. Well, if I can, I would like to thank good
Vince for having taken part in Kill Bill!
emissary: Some voices say that your next movie
will be adventurous and set in Barbagia, a place of
seizures. You will engage unknown actors. Can you
tell as a little more about it?
well, ideas are many. I was thinking of a location
in Supramonte to experiment a new genre: malloreddus-western.
I was thinkng of the plot: a young trasportee from
Cagliari goes in Barbagia for a delivery, and in the
end he has to face the difficulties of Supramonte.
For the cast, only debutant or non-professional actors.
I have read about Mr. Fisieddu...have you ever heard
