Apaixonados pelo que fazem, vários diretores de cinema expõem seu amor pela sétima arte em seus próprios filmes. E nada mais apaixonante e eficiente do que falar do cinema usando sua própria linguagem. A exemplo disso, temos a excelente comédia romântica “A Rosa Púrpura do Cairo”, do ácido Woddy Allen, o sensível “Cinema Paradiso”, de Giuseppe Tornatore e o incrível “A Noite A... read more
