The source for reprisal is an Italian film entitled Il Divo: the Spectacular Life of Giulio Andreotti, based on the former Italian Prime Minister (portrayed by Toni Servillo) who maintained office for 30 years despite numerous court cases for corruption, murder and links with the mafia. What sets this film aside for me was the super slick cinematography, which drew you along eyes sparkling. The film is off set with dry humour and a killer soundtrack - the tracks for the killing scenes are the best - to rival Tarantino's jukebox selection. Paolo Sorrentio has taken a potentially languid bio and created an intense fascination for Giulio's impish hunchback. I wait in anticipation for Sorrentio's next offering and the musical gratification it may encompass.
