Great film - scandal and drama
30 November 2010 | by (Santa Barbara, California) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of the earthquake that destroyed much of one of Italy's 20 "cities of art" and the cynical, exploitative use of this by Silvio Berlusconi to prop up his sagging popularity. Nobody knows this story in the US or outside of Italy as far as I can tell: it's a mixture of tragedy and real estate development of a kind that explains quite a bit about life in a lot of wealthy countries today. It's very deft - the director is a subtler, much less intrusive version of Michael Moore who is telling a great story of modern Italy and of modern rulers in general. She's quite a well known comedian in Italy, the director of "Viva Zapatero," another classic exposé of power in modern Italy, really a remarkable expression of how the Italian people bounce back no matter how awful their governments. This film is not to be missed!
