Once celebrated for his over-the-top horror films, Bruno is now a bankrupt failing movie producer on the verge of separating from his wife. He is determined to find a project that will make him some money and by chance he meets a young filmmaker with an exciting script. Unfortunately he falls asleep while reading it and assumes it is an action thriller, only to discover it is in fact a satire of Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. A dangerous film to make in Italy when the media is tightly regulated by Berlusconi’s government, Bruno is so desperate he can’t quit the project. Instead, he forges ahead and, in his fight to get the film made, his passion for cinema is re-ignited. Fusing comedy and drama, fact and fiction, the film is a biting comment on Italian politics.
A truly classic comedy about washed-up Broadway producer who convinces his meek accountant to help him put on a doomed Nazi-themed musical.
