- Peter Yates, the director of "Breaking Away" passed away on Sunday.
Mr. Yates surprised many reviewers with what is often considered his most charming and appealing film: "Breaking Away," a coming-of-age story about a working-class teen in Bloomington, Ind., who is resentful of the privileged university students in his town and becomes devoted to Italian cycling and culture as a way to prove his superiority.
The film starred Dennis Christopher as the young man who renames his cat Fellini (his real name was Jake) and irritates his father (Paul Dooley) with shouts of "Buon giorno, papa!" and his insistence on eating "eenie" foods like zucchini and fettucini.
New York Times movie critic Janet Maslin praised Mr. Yates's "subtle and imaginative success."
