Visit our Synopsis Help to learn more
In this chilling story about world politics, Toni Servillo defies expectations playing two roles, imbuing each character with brilliant nuance and astonishing attention to detail. In the first, he personifies political failure in the role of the disgraced ideologue and party leader, Enrico Oliveri. In the second, he embodies the shrewd genius of a madman as Oliveris unhinged twin brother who seizes control of the nation amidst the void of his brothers disappearance.

As the national election approaches, Enrico Oliveri has plummeted in the polls and his supporters and adversaries alike begin to acknowledge his impending downfall. Unwilling to face the failure of his party and his nation, Oliveri vanishes into the night. The party leadership tries to hedge for time by concealing Oliveris disappearance with a series of acrobatic sidesteps. In a desperate move, right hand man Andrea Bottini seeks out Oliveris look-alike twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, a prolific author and philosopher who is freshly released from an insane asylum. Slowly and steadily, Giovanni insinuates himself into his brothers public persona, impersonating Oliveris every tick and mannerism exquisitely yet slightly imperfectly. Giovanni quickly surpasses his brothers political prowess with an eerie talent for rallying the masses through fearless and heroic speeches. As And shifts between the failure of the sincere intellectual and the heroics of a madman, he probes the driving forces behind our contemporary global political reality leaving behind a rich web of questions in this unpredictable and provocative thriller.

Il segretario del principale partito di opposizione, Enrico Oliveri, si abbandona alla nostalgia in seguito ad uno stato depressivo dovuto ai sondaggi sempre pi sfavorevoli per il suo partito. Allinsaputa di sua moglie Anna e del suo stretto collaboratore Bottini, fugge una notte improvvisamente per raggiungere a Parigi la donna con la quale, 20 anni prima, aveva avuto una relazione, Danielle. Danielle oggi una segretaria di edizione sposata al celebre regista cinese Mung con il quale ha una figlia dodicenne, Hlne. Nel frattempo in Italia Anna e Bottini cercano di risolvere la situazione ricorrendo al fratello gemello di Enrico, Ernani, professore di filosofia reduce da un lungo soggiorno in ospedale psichiatrico. Pur essendo fratelli gemelli apparentemente identici, i due uomini sono in realt profondamente diversi. Ernani prende dunque il posto di Enrico: rilascia interviste, tiene discorsi in pubblico, presiede conferenze immettendo nella politica un vento rivoluzionario, la creativit al potere, la poesia che lascia stupefatti gli avversari e fa sognare gli elettori. Sar questo linizio di un misterioso passo a due in cui si intrecciano la vita pubblica e la vita privata di un uomo, ma anche quelle di due fratelli gemelli innamorati della stessa donna. Una partita a distanza la cui posta in gioco sono la verit e la falsit del potere.
