Sergio Leone, portrait of an outlaw

Written and directed by Jean-François Giré


This is, in a “Once upon a time” fashion, the story of Sergio Leone, from his birth and childhood in Fascist Italy until his last film project. This is the story of this unusual trajectory in the world of cinema and the “big dream” which inspired this epicurean master of the image right up until his death. Through archives and images of the places of his childhood in Rome and fabulous locations in Andalusia, the dramaturgy of the film grows with the rising intensity in his work, from his famous “Dollars” trilogy to his “Once Upon a Time” trilogy.
