Q: Are We Not Men?

I've just been to see Il Divo, the exciting Paolo Sorrentino film about Giulio Andreotti, a shady Italian politician. I may talk about it at greater length in the future, but for now let me say that I recommend it highly. I don't think you would need to know anything about Italian politics to enjoy it – I thought it was excellent, and had never heard of anyone in it apart from Andreotti himself (and Aldo Moro, but he is not in it that much). The film is on in the IFI till the 9th of April. I reckon the lush cinematography would make this one worth seeing on the big screen.

Great performance by Toni Servillo too, playing Andreotti as a wonderful grotesque (not too distant to Nosferatu). Intriguing movie.
