ONE MAN UP

ONE MAN UP

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
The debut feature by acclaimed Italian director Paolo Sorrentino is a stylish and blackly comic look at the dark side of fame. Evocatively set during the 80s, it charts the decline of two men both named Antonio Pisapia who lead entirely separate yet strangely parallel lives. One (Toni Servillo) is a pop singer who finds himself washed up after a sex scandal ends his run of success; the other (Andrea Renzi) is a football hero whose playing career is abruptly cut short by injury. Sharply observed and featuring excellent performances from the two leads, Sorrentino's compelling film explores the personal consequences wrought by cruel reversals of fortune. 'One Man Up' is loosely based on the true stories of two Italian celebrities, musician Franco Califano and football star Agostino Di Bartolomei.
