Daniele Luchetti (Italian pronunciation: [luˈketti]; born 25 July 1960) is an Italian film director, screenwriter and actor.
Life and career
Luchetti was born in Rome. He debuted as assistant director for Nanni Moretti in Bianca (1983) and The Mass Is Ended (1985). Luchetti's first film as director was It's Happening Tomorrow of 1988, which won a David di Donatello as best debuting film and received a mention in the 1988 Cannes Film Festival.
His subsequent work was the successful The Yes Man (1991), featuring Silvio Orlando as the ghost-writer of a ruthless politician, played by Nanni Moretti. It was seen as a forecast of the Mani Pulite corruption scandal that struck Italy the following year. The film won four David di Donatello awards.
