Born in Rome, Gabriele Muccino gained success with films such as L’ultimo bacio (One Last Kiss) and Remember Me, My Love (Ricordati di me).
His third feature film, “L’ultimo bacio” (The Last Kiss), was directed in 2001 and was his breakthrough that called upon international attention. The film’s success led to Muccino signing a two-picture deal with Miramax. His success only continued to grow with his next film, “Ricordati di me” (Remember Me, My Love) in 2003.
Muccino has won several awards throughout his lifetime. The first being Best Film at the Torino International Festival of Young Cinema in 1998 for Ecco fatto (That’s It).

This film also earned the Audience Award in 2002 at the Sundance Festival which introduced Muccino to the United States. Ricordita di me scored three Nastro d’Argento Prizes which are the Italian equivalent to the Oscars. This film also won Best Director, Best Film, and Best Screenplay at the Donatello Awards in 2003.
