Film critic Tatti Sanguineti has arrived in Palermo to investigate what became of the film Belluscone: A Sicililian Story, which Maresco was supposed to make and which was supposed to expose Berlusconi’s close ties to Sicily’s organized crime. In a hilarious and unique way, Maresco’s film shows the impact of Berlusconi’s forced resignation as Prime Minister. Maresco is not interested in making a political film but simply in riffing on the notion that powerful men who come out of nowhere have to be funded by someone with a clear intent to intervene in politics. “Belluscone” is the Sicilian pronunciation of Berlusconi. In Italian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
