Spring 2013 February 17 in Sechelt, March 4 in Gibsons
Italy, 2012, 104 min, comedy/drama. Italian with English subtitles.
Director: Nanni Moretti
Nanni Moretti joins forces with French actor Michel Piccoli to tell the story of Melville, a cardinal who unexpectedly finds himself elected the next Pope. Completely caught off guard, he panics as he’s presented to the faithful in St. Peter’s Square. The Vatican calls in a psychiatrist (played by Moretti) who is neither religious nor all that eager to take on the new Pope. What follows is a marvelous insight into the concept of a human being existing behind the title of God’s representative on Earth. A likeable, understated farce with serious issues on its mind.
Nanni Moretti: See no evil. Review in The Guardian by Xan Brooks, May 2011.
A Reluctant Pontiff Escapes to the Streets. Review in the NY Times by Manohla Dargis, April 2012.
