Sergio is a guileful businessman who manages a group of young escorts which he uses to bribe local politicians and authority figures. With a desire for increased political leverage, he sets his eyes on bigger game and makes it his duty to work his way into the ranks of a man with a notorious taste for both hedonism and corruption — Italy’s Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi.

Master filmmaker and Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino (Youth, The Great Beauty) teams up once again with longtime collaborator Toni Servillo (Il Divo, The Great Beauty) to reveal the scandalous and, until now, unseen private life of Italy’s most infamous politician.

Packed with sensational satirical sting, biopics don’t come more unauthorised than this!

Gaudy, corporeal and just a little (okay, a lot) crass, Paolo Sorrentino’s satirical biopic of Silvio Berlusconi cuts to the bone.
Time Out
A richly inventive, ferocious feast of satire and vulgarity.
