Storyline

Francesco is an entrepreneur in the building industry. His company is near to collapse if it doesn't win a deal to build a new school complex. It needs at least 60 million liras to participate to the deal, but all the banks refuse to lend the money. A corrupt bank employee introduces him 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 discovers that Claudio is not what he says. Written by X

Vite Et Bien Fait (vhs)
17 September 2017 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

Even if it has a famous french actor, you can feel that it's an Italian movie: Not as much because of its cast but there is something with the way of shooting, the light, the focus of a provincial family, that we don't see in french thriller. Ferilli is as good as usual and one more time, terribly serious as a wife while she is always happy in talk shows... This Zingaretti oozes the bad and wicked guy and i really wonder how is his real life as i will not trust him a second!
