Alberto Lecchi (born 1954) is an Argentine film, screenwriter and film producer.
Born in Buenos Aires, Lecchi started working in Argentine cinema in 1979, as a second assistant director to Hugo Sofovich in the three films he directed that year. Lecchi went on to work in the 80s and early 90s along acclaimed directors, working eight times with Fernando Ayala, four times with Adolfo Aristarain and with Juan Jose Jusid in Plata dulce.
His directorial debut was in 1984 with El Sueno de Cecilia, a six-minute short, but came to prominence when he directed Ricardo Darin and Enrique Pinti in the thriller Perdido por perdido in 1993, his first feature-length movie, and his second turn as director, after which he gave up his career as assistant director. Lecchi established himself as a prolific film director in the 90s, directing El Dedo en la Llaga (1996), the critically acclaimed Secretos compartidos (1998) and Operacion Fangio (1998), and working with Argentine A-list actors Dario Grandinetti, Victor Laplace, and Pinti.
