Movie Info

Seduction, glamour, corruption, drugs and raucous poolside parties: the life and times of scandal-plagued Silvio Berlusconi have long-demanded a screen depiction, and who else to deliver it than Paolo Sorrentino, the Academy Award-winning director of The Great Beauty and The Young Pope, who returns to cinema in spectacular fashion with this dazzling, topical and no-holds-barred look at life in Italy under the glistening eye of modern Europe's most infamous politician. With LORO, Sorrentino gradually unpeels the complex personality and motivations of the billionaire former Prime Minister - played with unmistakable panache by Toni Servillo - during a tumultuous period in his career, as his marriage to second wife Veronica Lario (Elena Sofia Ricci) fractures; all the while skilfully threading together stories of a wide variety of characters from multiple levels of society and their attempts to either ingratiate or distance themselves from him... Boldly and controversially speculating on what may or may not have taken place behind closed doors, LORO (which translates as 'Them') offers a timely commentary on the excesses and follies of the power-hungry.

There are enough fantastic sequences in Loro, and another great performance from Servillo, but this is a slight disappointment given what we've come to expect from Sorrentino.

"Loro" is the definitive Paolo Sorrentino film to date. It's brash, stylish, and silly. It oscillates back and forth between horny and human, profound and misguided. It's a glorious mess.

A richly inventive, ferocious feast of satire and vulgarity.

....a memorable piece of work.

Sorrentino is an exceptional director and Servillo is a most remarkable actor; once again these two major talents have created a film of considerable impact, even if this time their subject remains frustratingly elusive.

...why render it all over again, especially when the whole scenario is left to fizzle out, and is never revived?
