"Power wears out those who don't have it" Giulio Andreotti
Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes last year, the latest from Paolo Sorrentino is a compelling 'fictional' portrait of Italy's most powerful and enigmatic politician, Giulio Andreotti. Suspected of involvement with conspiracies dating back to the 1970s, including the murder of 'God's banker' Roberto Calvi under Blackfriars Bridge, Andreotti constantly emerged unscathed. Stylish, enthralling and a little unnerving, Il Divo exposes the nature of true power through the backdrop of politics and plots at the highest levels. Starring Toni Servillo and Anna Boniuto.
