Biography

Quentin Tarantino was born in 1963 in Knoxville, Tenessee.
He spent his youth in a suburb of Los Angeles and becomes interested in film at an early age. His passion leads him, at the age of 22, to work in a video store where he spends his days with his friend Roger Avary, with whom he wrote Pulp Fiction several years later.
It's during this time that he decides to edit his first scripts.
Owing to the sale of his scripts True Romance and Natural Born Killers he directs his first film Reservoir Dogs in 1992. The film is widely distributed and becomes one of the best cop thrillers of the 90s.
His second film, Pulp Fiction wins the Palme d'Or at the 1995 Festival de Cannes.
In 1997 he shoots Jackie Brown, one of the best films of the decade, a tribute film to American cinema of the 70s.
With Jackie Brown, Quentin Tarantino crosses over into the realm of great filmmakers.
Following an absence of five years, Quentin Tarantino is back on the studio lot in 2002 with Kill Bill. Originally produced as a single film, it is finally released in two parts: Kill Bill Volume1 and Kill Bill Volume 2. He is planning to start work on the third and final opus of his Kill Bill saga.
