Description:
Satirical and semi-fictional portrayal of controversial Italian politician and magnate Silvio Berlusconi and his entourage.

Sorrentino places us in the seedy orbit of Sergio, a handsome young guy-on-the-make whose ambition is to leave his provincial southern city of Taranto for Rome and get close to Berlusconi. His means of doing so is sordid but highly effective. Trafficking beautiful young women as escorts to attend parties and events proves to be his stepping stone into the halls of power. Meanwhile, Berlusconi - a fallen PM abandoned by his political allies - is left to fumble with the private realities behind his public scandals.

"The idea for a film about Berlusconi came to me and grew during the years when Berlusconi was present among us. For many years, a large portion of Italians loved him while another substantial portion hated him. He sparked very strong, completely contrasting feelings. My ambition was to depict him and also some of the Italians who tried to follow his path and become connected to him any way they could." (Paolo Sorrentino)
