The filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is writing a book about a former military man who fought in World War II (1939-1945) and who just got fed up with the superficiality of the films, especially Hollywood, until he discovered foreign cinema.
The director of "Kill Bill" unveiled this project in a conversation with also the director Martin Scorsese published Monday in DGA Quarterly, the magazine of the guild of directors of the USA.
In that talk, Tarantino spoke for the first time of the book he is creating.
"Right now I am working on a book. I have a character who has fought in World War II and saw a lot of bloodshed there. And now he is back at home, around the 1950s, and no longer responds to the cinema . Find the films too young after everything you've lived, "describes Tarantino.
"As far as he is concerned, Hollywood movies are just movies for him. And then, suddenly, he starts hearing about those foreign films from Kurosawa and Fellini ...", the filmmaker advances.
An idea to which Scorsese shows his interest: "Yes, yes, yes."
And Tarantino continues: "And then (the protagonist) says: 'Well, maybe these tapes have more than those other fake Hollywood' -details. - Then he is attracted to these things and some of them like, some do not like and others do not understand them, but he knows that he is seeing something. "
Apparently, with his new project, Tarantino is reflecting on the differences between the cinema of the powerful Hollywood industry and foreign productions.
It is not the first time that the creator of "Pulp Fiction" comments on his intention to publish a novel, because he already said that after retiring from the cinema he would like to devote himself to writing books and plays.
In fact, a while ago Tarantino said that the plot of his latest film, "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood," released this summer and starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, was originally conceived as a novel and later adapted to A movie script.
For his part, Scorsese has just presented at the New York Film Festival his new film: "The Irishman", which with an ambitious budget and starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, sounds like a strong contender for the Oscar.
