Declaration

film director

“The great communicative force, and I would say even poetic, of Altan’s work lies precisely in his ability to interpret, without necessarily seconding them, the moods, feelings (and sometimes resentments) of ordinary people, who look at  life in a way authentic, sometimes disenchanted but never cynical. A look always in step with the times, but without giving anything to the fashions of the time.”
