Anthony Minghella

posted by Nell Minow

It is a terrible loss to the world of film that Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella has died suddenly of complications following surgery. I am very much looking forward to his final film, based on the best-selling book, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. It seems like a perfect choice of material for this most literate and sensitive of writer/directors.


Minghella’s obituaries will focus on his best-known and most prestigious films like “Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” and the movie for which he won his best director Oscar, “The English Patient.” But my favorite of his films will aways be the first one he directed, the deeply romantic “Truly, Madly, Deeply,” starring Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman.

    I’m so sorry to hear this – “Truly, Madly, Deeply” is a wonderful film, with amazing performances by Juliet Stevenson, and Alan Rickman. Minghella movies were always interesting.
