Il Divo

This biopic dramatizes the rise to power of Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, who has been elected to Parliament seven times since it was established in 1946. Despite being linked to the Mafia, neo-fascists, rampant political corruption and a couple hundred murders, the 90-year-old Andreotti is still at it. Like a version of The Godfather starring Dick Cheney, Il Divo looks at politics as the ultimate conspiracy and the grim-faced Andreotti (played perfectly by Toni Servillo) as a blackly comic figure of Machiavellian power. In Italian with English subtitles. 110 minutes Unrated.
