Italy. Everyone is corrupt and everything centers around the eternally good humored “Cavaliere” Silvio Berlusconi (Toni Servillo), the amiable peddler of a dream he shamelessly touts with his own extravagant lifestyle. A former crooner and unscrupulous estate agent turned multibillionaire, media czar, eminent people’s court and the most powerful man in the country.
But now, driven by a dizzying greed for wealth and glory, ecstatic misbehavior and eternal youth, everyone wants to grab a share of what they were promised. While Il Cavaliere whiles away the days alone in his enormous summer home on Sardinia, discovering the plots against him, his killer salesman’s instinct comes back to life.
LORO combines caustic humor with archetypal characters to paint a visually stunning and desperately hopeless fresco of our existence.
