Director Lucio Pellegrini in person on June 5!
In Lucio Pellegrini’s screwball caper, a group of disillusioned citizens take their outrage to another level by attempting to kidnap a corrupt official. The unlikely band of accomplices include a pizza boy (played by Pierfrancesco Favino), an ardent Marxist, an excon, and a fetching TV journalist (Claudia Pandolfi). Pellegrini’s comedy of errors whizzes along with sharply written dialogue and absurd predicaments, humorously illustrating how the contemporary political scene in Italy could drive anyone to distraction.
