An obstacle was that Sorrentino's usual Italian co-financier Medusa Film, which is controlled by Berlusconi, was not willing to participate in this production. See more »
The 145 minutes cut of the movie, simply called "Loro", was shown in italian cinemas on September 13, 2018. This new cut, which combines scenes from both "Loro 1" and "Loro 2", has been made in order to allow the movie to run for the 91st Academy Awards and to compete in international festivals as a standalone film.

A good film about an awful human
He might be a repugnant individual, but Berlusconi's life is also occasionally terrifying and sometimes sad. He is a dinosaur, unwilling to let go of the glamour and corruption that have become his legacy, a man pumped on viagra, desperate to cheat age and ultimately death - unwilling to accept there is a battle he cannot win. Whether it's possible to make a fascinating study of one so vacuous is moot. It's well made. Whether you care what happens to Berlusconi the 'man' is a whole other matter. But certainly this could be shown in schools around the country - as the study of a personality and life one should never aim to duplicate.
