'We Have a Pope' is the Palme d'Or-nominated comedy from anti-establishment director Nanni Moretti.
The newly elected Pope suffers a panic attack just as he is due to appear on St Peter's balcony to greet the faithful, who have been patiently awaiting the conclave's decision. His advisors, unable to convince him he is the right man for the job, seek help from a renowned psychoanalyst (and atheist). But his fear of the responsibility suddenly thrust upon him is one that he must face on his own.
"The story of a reluctant pope and his neuroses, this charming examination of a manstruggling with his own inadequacies sees Palme d’Or winner Nanni Moretti at his most endearing and entertaining. Guest starring Moretti himself as the suffering psychoanalyst dragged in to solve the crisis, 'We Have A Pope' balances empathy and absurdity to create a heartfelt (and very funny) character study." - LOCO London Comedy Film Festival
