Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
2005, year of the death of John Paul II. Luca Bianco is a Christian fundamentalist, obsessed by Islam and by an extremely racist view of Christianity. He spends his time in the study of the Bible. The only person he's in contact with is a woman who comes daily to interview him. He talks to her about his past, about his religious and political belief, about his work and his marriage. She records every conversation on tape, day by day. From this very minimal situation, we jump to a different moment of Luca Bianco's life. It's summer, Luca loses his job, his marriage in in crisis. In the worst moment a engineer named Massimiliano Gorgia - a Christian fundamentalist himself - hires him as a car driver. From this moment, through a very complex plot, we are inside an international intrigue based on the clash of the civilizations on a side, on the difference between individual and politic ethics on the other.

Being mainly shot and edited in L'Aquila, Italy, Limen has been deeply damaged by the earthquake of April 6th 2009, during which the director and the whole crew lost their homes. After having made another movie, Into The Blue, Emiliano Dante came back to work on the movie (mostly shot in 2006), shooting new scenes and reediting whole parts. The very name "Limen" comes after the earthquake. Earlier, the working copies of the movie were called "Omission". See more »
