The new film from Paolo Sorrentino, the acclaimed director of The Consequences of Love and The Family Friend, is a riveting talk of political intrigue and organised crime, based n the extraordinary life of Guilio Andreotti. Italian Prime Minister no less than seven times, Andreotti s long career was dogged by persistent accusations of conspiracy, Mafia connections and state-sponsored terror. Epic in scope and featuring a commanding performance from Toni Servillo (Gomorrah) as the chillingly enigmatic Andreotti, this compelling and visually dazzling film explores the labyrinthine political machinations and shady criminal underworld surrounding this fascinating and controversial figure. Special Features: The making of Il Divo, Additional Interviews with director Paolo Sorrentino, Special effects featurette, Deleted scenes, Theatrical trailer

But in turn that is what makes this such an enthralling film with a free wheeling approach to depicting events in that limited time frame as pieces of hints are placed in different scenes to be linked back to later. And as for Andreotti the central performance of Tony Servillo, delivers why this man was a survivor from the post WWII years till currently, constantly hiding his feelings, being non-emotive in success and disappointment and alert to balancing the interests of his supporters in his own defence while not exposing himself to personal or public attack as the bodies pile up. The slouched shoulders and down at luck countenance offset the endless dry wisecracks as different persons challenge him as to what is the truth especially in the scenes with his wife and his priest. Though not stated in the film, one is left feeling that even if all the claims are true, in Andreotti's mind the prime need to have authoritarian government to save Italy from the communists and socialists justified the ends, including the sacrificing of his old political colleague Moro to the Red Brigades after his kidnapping.
The film is brilliantly scripted, acted, and edited plus makes fascinating use of music and sound effects to maximise the impact of the story and events. Definitely a film that will bear being seen several times.
The only minor gripe is that a few of the extras (notably the deleted scenes and special effects video) do not have English sub titles.
