Remembering Anthony Minghella
Friday, March 21, 2008
This week the British movie director Anthony Minghella died unexpectedly, at 54. He had a rare talent for making an old-fashioned romantic epic feel smart and fresh –- like in his films "The English Patient" and "Cold Mountain." Kurt spoke with Minghella in 2006 when he was staging a version of Puccini’s "Madame Butterfly" at New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
