Film Appreciation... Peter Cattaneo


"The Full Monty" was Peter Cattaneo's second Academy Award nomination. In 1990, his film, "Dear Rosie" was nominated in the Best Live Action Short Film category. A veteran of British television, Cattaneo's previous feature film credit is a well-regarded 1995 movie, "Loved Up".

Cattaneo is a young director who made a small, quirky film and ended up with near universal recognition and approval and a good seat at the academy Awards. "The Full Monty" is a funny and highly original movie that makes its point graciously, a rare quality these days. The movie has been successful, garnering over $200 million in box office - that's 1/5 of "Titanic's" take - but it's budget was only $3.5.
