Cristian De Mattheis was born in Teramo. He worked as an assistant director with for numerous films, including Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. He made his directorial debut with Un amore così grande.
De Mattheis said of his film: “It is a love story, but it is not only a love story among the two protagonists, the two young people. I tried to tell a story of the different types of great love…the love of a son, the love of a mother, the love of a father and an teacher.”
