Italian cinematographer Dante Spinotti worked with such internationally respected directors from his native country as Lina Wertmuller, Liliana Cavani and Giacomo Battiato before making his American debut with Michael Mann's "Manhunter" (1986), an early introduction to the Thomas Harris character Hannibal Lecter. He reunited with Mann for "The Last of the Mohicans" (1992), allowing his camera to run alongside Daniel Day-Lewis' Hawkeye and accompany the trajectory of a bullet or the flight of a tomahawk, and again for the dynamite cops-and-robbers saga "Heat" (1995). Another frequent partner has been director Garry Marshall, the two teaming on "Beaches" (1988), "Frankie and Johnnie" (1991) and "The Other Sister" (1999). Spinotti was also director of photography on two Michael Apted films, "Blink" and "Nell" (both 1994).
