Michele Massimo Tarantini (born 7 August 1942) is an Italian film director.


Life and career

Born in Corato, Bari, at young age Tarantini was assumed by the production company Dania Cinematografica, for which he held various positions including secretary of production, set designer, film editor and assistant director for Sergio Martino, Giuliano Carnimeo, Nando Cicero and Mariano Laurenti.

Tarantini made his directorial debut in 1973 with a giallo-crime film, Sette ore di violenza per una soluzione imprevista, but his first commercial success was the 1975 sexy comedy La liceale, which launched the career of Gloria Guida. Since then, Tarantini became one of the prominent and most successful directors in the commedia sexy all'italiana film genre.

In 1983 Tarantini moved to Brazil, where he kept directing low-budget genre films, often under the stage name Michael E. Lemick. His last film is the 2001 comedy Se lo fai sono guai.
