The disabled tank visited by Craxi and Fausto Is a real relic left in the desert near Hammamet. It is obviously an old Patton tank, presumably belonging once to the Tunesian army: as such, it couldn't have seen action in WW2, as Craxi recounts. See more »
If you grant (a lot of) indulgence to the controversial protagonist, you'll enjoy this nostalgic movie (Amelio is the right director), taste some subtleties, and praise the great performance of the lead actor - "adesso li fa tutti Favino", and for a very good reason - and the whole cast.
On the other side, even forgetting about history, you'll also notice the flaws: the most important political facts are just fainted, the identities are hidden (even ridiculously, as for Craxi's sons), there's no real plot (the Vincenzo's son escamotage does not work) which contribuites to the image of a insufferable crumbling king
