For the second time in his career, Paolo Sorrentino satirizes the tumult of Italian politics through the experiences of an infamous politician. While his hypnotic 2008 feature Il Divo dramatized the downfall of long-serving former Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, Loro’s hyperkinetic inspiration is the controversial tycoon/ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi, producing a corrosive and wildly profane comedy, skewering both its subject and modern Italy itself.

Loro (translated as ‘Them’) pulls out all the stops in what is initially a supercharged vision of the country and the flawed forces behind it, namely Berlusconi and his cronies at their point of decline in the late 2000s. Sorrentino places us in the seedy orbit of Sergio (Riccardo Scamarcio), a handsome young guy-on-the-make whose ambition is to leave his provincial southern city of Taranto for Rome and get close to Berlusconi (Toni Servillo). His means of doing so is sordid but highly effective. Trafficking beautiful young women as escorts to attend parties and events proves to be his stepping stone into the halls of power.
