In fact his first impact with Rome and his politician world is positive, Sandulli is really convinced the young minister want really change the situation working for the common interest. But step by step, nevertheless his economic and familiar situation gets a lot of benefits by his new job, he enters in a world in which intrigues and corruption are the only laws.

Italy 1991

There are films that are photographs of peculiar moments in a country history. This is one of those. It tells about politicians in Italy in the early '90s, about corruption that was the rule in those years. The characters portrayed by Nanni Moretti is the perfect example of this kind of politician. After that came - in the real life - the trials in Milano, which tore up an entire way of make politics, corruption seemed to be won.. but only for a while. After 15 years many things are back to what they used to be, politician are in Italy as corrupted as they once were (perhaps they never ceased to be), but with different names and different flags and that's the saddest thing.
