About Tonino Guerra

Tonino Guerra may very well be the greatest screenwriter of all time. Having written well over 100 screenplays, his extensive list of credits on IMBD is ultimate proof that his career was nothing short of prolific. His collaborations with many of the greatest names in cinema history, is further evidence of his gigantic professional stature. In addition, the countless honourable mentions, awards, and accolades, is one final tell-tale sign demonstrating just how fantastically large a role Tonino Guerra occupied in the hearts and minds of movie lovers.

To understand how great Tonino Guerra was, is to realise that his life as a screenwriter was just one facet of his illustrious career as a well-rounded artist, and, his life as a beautiful human being. Tonino Guerra was widely recognised as one of Italy’s national treasures. Luckily, this level of recognition produced ample amounts of readily available content either showcasing or commenting on his many personal and professional achievements, and one can easily lose him or herself for days on end in Tonino Guerra’s magical world.

However, nothing short of a thesis can do this brilliant man justice. Thus, perhaps the best way to pay homage to Tonino Guerra, is to enjoy his art as he had originally intended.

Tonino Guerra originally co-wrote ‘The Fragrant Land’ in Italian as ‘Terra Fragrante’. Prior to ‘The Fragrant Land’, Tonino Guerra and Ian Shine collaborated on three other projects, including the screenplay ‘Pictorial Photo’, the short film ‘Comedian’, and a libretto for the opera ‘Requiem of Passion’.

Prior to ‘The Fragrant Land’, Ian Shine and Tonino Guerra collaborated on three other projects, including the screenplay ‘Pictorial Photo’, the short film ‘Comedian’, and a libretto for the opera ‘Requiem of Passion’.

Since his time working with Tonino Guerra, Ian Shine has written four plays for the theatre, three screenplays, and two novels. His debut novel, ‘God does not want to be lonely’ (2010), was mostly dedicated to cinema lovers, who would have undoubtedly relished each moment in his rich and vivid world. His latest novel, ‘Anxious Spirit’ (2015), may possibly be his long awaited masterpiece. ‘Anxious Spirit’ is a collection of prose that unravels the very essence of the human condition, as it bears witness to collapse, destruction, construction, and renewal. The use of magical imagery and sublime philosophy elevates the already rich tapestry of meaning to profound proportions.

Regardless of the medium, Ian Shine continues to create mind bending and awe inspiring content that keeps his fans coming back for more.
