A mix create a grotesque journey through power, sex and will of people who does everything to be successful: Pier (Andrea Riva) is a powerful and important Mogul who keeps the power in his country. Elegant, ironical and well educated, he has a bizarre sexual instinct which is satisfied by his mistress, Romy (Susann Giaroli), who collect people, men and women (musicians, directors, writers and businessmen) who agree to satisfy his weird fantasies for getting his help to the way to success. Like a Decameron, a group of people in a house meet their pride and greed for power and sex.Written by
A True Represenation of Italy's Society at its worst.
I was vexed by this film simply because it reaffirms a reality too close to me. Nepotism, something that Italians do unashamedly very well.
I should know, I come from a family that left Italy because of the difficulty this poses to everyday people who are not affiliated with anyone in 'Power'. I myself am reluctant to return to Italy because of this cancer which has been bringing the country down for centuries.
NOTHING is done on merit, its all about who you know and what you're willing to trade.
This movie exposes the underbelly of Italian nepotism and it possibly shows us how desperate people have become in their need for survival, and a social heed to progress or remain a 'nobody' forever.
Probably anyone who is not Italian will find this movie 'Funny' or even 'Aritistic' but for anyone who was born in Italy or has lived there for a few year, this film is brilliantly sad as it unmasks the 'Bel Paese'.
