At the beginning of his career there is a failed attempt. But Quentin Tarantino learned a lot from that.

The US director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino (59) only managed to become a great director because of his perseverance.

As a young man, he tried to make a movie and failed, he said at the OMR digital festival in Hamburg. “The fact that I didn’t stop after that is perhaps the fact that makes me most proud of my career.”

He never went to film school, but he learned a lot by trying. “I’ve gotten better just by doing it.” A little later after the movie, which never became one, he wrote the screenplay for “True Romance”. The film starring Patricia Arquette, Christian Slatter, Gary Oldmann and Dennis Hopper was released in 1993 – and has become a cult film among Tarantino fans.
