THE JEWEL [Il Gioiellino]
Chameleonic actor Toni Servillo delivers another multi-faceted performance as a workaholic executive whose peculiar sense of professionalism clashes with his risk-taking, corner-cutting and ultimately backstabbing managers in this ripped-from-the-headlines corporate thriller from Andrea Molaioli (THE GIRL BY THE LAKE). Based on real-life events surrounding the rise and fall of Parmalat, an Italian family-run dairy conglomerate that, in ways reminiscent of Enron in the US, got in over its head through reckless wheeling and dealing and financial chicanery. Official Selection, 2011 Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
