Storyline

Ernesto Bolta is the accountant of LEDA, a big agribusiness. Its founder, Amanzio Rastelli, appointed several of his relations to managerial positions and the firm decided quite lightly to think internationally and now it is heavily in debt. Luckily for the Rastellis, Bolta is on the watch. He uses all the tricks of his art to cook the books. But rushing headlong will not avoid the coming catastrophe... Written by Guy Bellinger

excellent movie! strongly recommended!
6 March 2011 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A very important protest film, it really helps you to understand what happened to Italian (and not only Italian) capitalism. The movie helped me understand the largest bankrupt in Italian history! It should be shown at business schools! The movie is settled in a provincial Italian town, and the setting is marvelous, the description of the mechanism that drove the CEO and CFO of Parmalat to hide a huge debt is really convincing and disquieting. The psychological portrait of the main characters is passionating. I already suspected after "La ragazza del lago" that Molaioli was a great director now I am sure of that!! The music is excellent too. Finally, Servillo is the great Servillo once more.
