This comedy portrays Enrico Olivieri, the head of the major opposition party in a serious crisis when the polls show him to be losing the election. His solution? to vanish! He goes to Paris and hides out at an old girlfriend's house as everyone tries to find the vanishing politician.
Frantic party officials find out Olivieri (played by Toni Servillo) has twin brother Giovanni and get him to take the place of his missing brother. His poetic citizen oriented public speaking, in direct contrast to his missing politician brother, has the party rising in the polls once again with crowds enthusiastic with admiration. But someone is watching from their secret hiding place waiting..... Toni Servillo gives a consumate performance in this winking critique of Italian politics.
4 wins and 18 nominations. Winner of Italy's Oscar, the Davide di Donatello, Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay. Golden Globes Italy nominated for Best Director and Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Film. Director Roberto Ando. Starring Toni Servillo, Valerio Mastrandrea, Valeria Bruni, Michela Cescon.

A lively madcap comedy about the survival of love. Guido, (played by Luca Marinelli) is a academic genius from Tuscany who spends his life stalking bookstores when he is not working as a night porter at a hotel. The love of his life, Antonia, is a fiery, talented musician from Sicily.
This poignant and funny film tells the story of the real McCoy love affair always pulling and hugging onto your heartstrings. Love conquers all. Or does it?
