Not these lads…
It focuses on the downfall of ear-y Giulio Andreotti, who apparently hooked up with the mafia sometime in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
The movie is dark and red. Wholly engrossing, even if it’s a teensy bit confusing at times for someone (like me) who wasn’t totally familiar with the back story, it did however, encourage me to actually look up about it and I’ve learned a lot!
The wordy bits at the start are especially nice and the camera work is A1.
The tone is right, comical in places, and bloody at times.
It moves really fast, but gets a tiny bit bogged down towards the end with the detail and how X knows Y and that Y met M and Q met P and they all met Andreotti.
The guy playing him was deadly too, as are all the supporting cast.
RPs says YES to Il Divo.
