A WASTED OPPORTUNITY TO TELL A GREAT STORY
5 March 2019 | by mantas_narkeviciusSee all my reviews

SEEN THIS TWO-PARTER AS ONE MOVIE (AS WAS INTENDED FOR INTERNATIONAL RELEASE, I THINK)

This movie establishes a great, great premise. It's about a guy who wants to be recognized by the great Silvio Berlusconi so bad that he would probably be willing to suck some if he had to. He is not the most sympathetic person in the world and has questionable morals, but in the end he is probably only at fault because his mind and principles are set on the wrong goal. But it's not easy, because Berlusconi is an enigma, a man that is hard to reach. This larger than life character of Berlusconi is then slowly established from little word of mouth stories here and there that different characters share in conversations.

Well, after the first 45 minutes the protagonist (?) of the story completely disappears from the movie never to be seen again. And the rest of the film then follows Silvio Berlusconi who just sits at home and bickers with his wife. He's just some old guy. Then the movie ends.

There is also some sort of symbolism with a Jesus on the cross statue at the very end? So does this mean there is some religious meaning behind all this? Who knows.

Besides being mostly boring, the movie also doesn't provide much knowledge or character about the real life Silvio Berlusconi. So really, for me the movie fails both on the entertainment level as far as a good story goes, and then also on educational level.

On the bright side - the talent involved in the making shows.

I'd say give it a pass.
