Paolo Franchi was born in Bergamo. He won the Golden Globe award for Best First Feature for La spettatrice and Best Director for Nessuna qualità agli eroi.

Regarding his film, Franchi stated "I wanted to shoot a portrait of a woman, to tell about the conflicts, to stage love and feelings, and above all the fear of experiencing them, the emotional state of those who watch their lives go by, of those who do not take the trains that pass in front of them."
