Gala Premières and special events

"At its core, 'Loro' is the story of a man who can only exist as a performance, a man who in many respects is like an actor, an artist, a director of sorts himself. In Sorrentino's hands, Berlusconi is not just a figure who vindicates a nation of secret perverts, he is a magician who makes a whole new world seem possible precisely when it is not. He is a narcissist who believes in his own nonsense most but not all of the time, a human in the jaws of death, like the rest of us. Watching Sorrentino grapple with his own his masochistic desire to sympathise with the devil is fascinating stuff." (Little White Lies)
