Storyline

Francesco is an active entrepreneur in the building industry. His firm is near to collapse if it won't win a deal to build a new school complex. It needs at least 60 Mn Lire (30k Euro) to participate to the deal, but all the banks refuse to lend the money it needs. A corrupted bank employee introduces Francesco to Claudio, apparently an assistant of Sergio, Francesco's old school friend. Sergio is an accountant available to lend Francesco the money he needs. Francesco wins the deal. But soon he will discover Claudio isn't what he says he is. At the end the cost to pay will be too high and will make his family running high risks. Written by 1felco

An ambitious '' heel '' and his moves around a building company,set in Rome and surroundings.
30 November 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is a solid movie,living on the afflatus of a in-the-role Luca Zingaretti and natural acting of all characters : watch it in a subtitled copy to truly taste the Rome slang.Some rude scenes,appreciated.Effective dialogs. The film recreates the mood of 80's huge successful series ''LaPiovra'' ,ten years later (curiosity:Violante Placido,daughter of Michele,acts here).It's a show-up for the most representative actors in the Italian scene ,Sabrina Ferilli,an icon in Italian cinema,born in Rome.And Luca Zingaretti,whose hit with ''Commissario Montalbano'' was still to come. The film acts compact like a punch.Interpreters are well casted ,they get on each other perfectly,presence of some real-life ties between them helps.
