[Il Caimano]

Official selection, 2006 Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals

Moretti's wicked satire won six David de Donatello awards, including Best Picture. Bankrupt in his professional and personal life, Z-grade movie producer Silvio Orlando is finding it impossible to raise money for his latest project, "The Return of Christopher Columbus". A young director gives him a script that he initially takes for a half-hearted thriller, but upon more careful reading, he realizes the subject is prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.
