I don’t film messages. I let the post office take care of those.

I am still against any kind of censorship. It's a subject in my life that has been very important.

You know for American filmmakers, the Oscars is like a mystic thing. For me it was being in a mirror of my dreams when I was dreaming of Hollywood when I was an adolescent.

Akira Kurosawa's movies and La Dolce Vita, href="http://www.palzoo.net/Federico-Fellini"Fellini, are the things that pushed me into being a film.

Known both for sweeping epics and for helping to bring eroticism into general release with "Last Tango in Paris".

He is the elder son of Ninetta, a teacher, and Attilio Bertolucci, who was a poet, a reputed art historian, anthologist and film critic.

His father's background helped his career: the elder Bertolucci had helped the Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini publish his first novel, and Pasolini reciprocated by hiring Bertolucci as first assistant in Rome on Accattone (1961), where he met his first wife, Adriana Asti.

Bertolucci initially wished to become a poet like his father. With this goal in mind, he attended the Faculty of Modern Literature of the University of Rome from 1958 to 1961. This is where his film career as an assistant director to Pasolini began. Shortly after, Bertolucci left the University without graduating.

Bertolucci became infamous in 1972, with the controversial film "Last Tango in Paris", when a scene featuring the anal rape of character Jeane using butter as a lubricant, among other depictions of the young Maria Schneider that were thought to be exploitative, caused serious concern due to its representation of women.

Supported the Italian Communist Party (PCI).

Bertolucci is an atheist.

He is a professed Marxist.
