    Oscar-Winning Director Minghella Dies

    Agent Judy Daish confirmed the director's death but further details were not immediately available.


    I loved his films. Anthony Minghella was too young, at 54.

    i will always love Truly, Madly, Deeply.

    The talented Mr Minghella

    The film debut of director and screenplay writer Anthony Minghella - who won the best director Oscar for The English Patient in 1997 - could not have been better.

    In 1991, former Hull University lecturer Minghella wrote and directed the tear-jerker Truly, Madly, Deeply, starring Alan Rickman and Juliet Stevenson.

    I liked his films, too. His son, Max, is also very talented. My husband and I are sad to hear this. I wonder what happened.

    I am really sad to hear this. I love the films him and Jude Law have done. I'm a huge Jude Law fan. They recently did a movie together called "Breaking and Entering" which for some reason got very little screen play in the US but it was a really good movie. JL fans will love it.

    Minghella's publicist, Jonathan Rutter, said the filmmaker died at London's Charing Cross Hospital. He said Minghella was operated on last week for a growth in his neck, "and the operation seemed to have gone well. At 5 a.m. today he had a fatal hemorrhage."
