See this if you liked 'Vice' - this month on Curzon12. Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino ('The Great Beauty', 'Loro') tackles the political life of infamous Italian politician Giulio Andreotti in this wildly stylised, boldly provocative and satirical portrait. The title sequence alone introduces real-life Italian politicians as gangster-like imitators clustered around Andreotti. This seemingly impassive figure is set to assume his seventh term as Prime Minister. No matter the accusations levelled against him, he emerges unscathed from everything: electoral corruption, murderous errands and ruthless conniving. But when he makes a move against the Mafia, they declare war on him and his position suddenly becomes less tenable. And yet, this is his world. Those who think they have the upper hand over this master of subterfuge have fallen foul of his before, no matter their political or criminal might. Effortlessly stylish, with cinematography by regular Sorrentino collaborator Luca Bigazzi, the film is dominated by Toni Servillo’s extraordinary performance. ★★★★★ "As character assassination, it’s delicious and deadly" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out ★★★★★ "Rips open the deep ravines of drama, corruption, internecine power struggles and ultimately death that lie behind Italy’s precarious post-war politics" - Bernadette McNulty, The Telegraph
