Director and screenwriter PAOLO SORRENTINO was born in Naples in 1970.

His first full-length feature One Man Up, starring Toni Servillo and Andrea Renzi, was selected at the 2001 Venice Film Festival, achieved three nominations for the David di Donatello (the Italian Academy Awards) and won the Nastro d'Argento (the Italian cinema journalists Academy Award) for Best First Time Director. In 2004 he directed The Consequences of Love, selected in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and acclaimed by both Italian and International critics. The film won many important Italian awards, including five David di Donatello awards: for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Cinematography. Three years later his third film The Family Friend was also selected in Competition at Cannes. In 2008 another collaboration with Toni Servillo, Il Divo, became his third film to be selected in Competition at Cannes, winning the Prix du Jury. The film was nominated for Best Make-Up at the Academy Awards and won seven David di Donatello, five Ciak d'Oro and five Nastri d'Argento awards.

In 2010 he published his first novel, Hanno tutti ragione, which was warmly received by both critics and public and was short-listed for the Premio Strega, the most prestigious Italian literature award. THIS MUST BE THE PLACE, Sorrentino's first English language feature, marks his fourth film in Competition at Cannes.
