Loro Rated 18


Dir. Paolo Sorrentino. Italy, 2019. 2h 31m. Italian/subs. Starring Toni Servillo, Elena Sofia Ricci, Riccardo Scamarcio, Kasia Smutniak, Euridice Axen, Fabrizio Bentivoglio.

Master filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino teams up once again with longtime collaborator Toni Servillo to revel in the scandalous and, until now, the unseen private life of Italy's most infamous politician – Silvio Berlusconi. Packed with a sensational satirical sting, biopics don't come more unauthorised than this!

‘It's easy to get lost in the Bacchanalian orgies, but at its heart 'Loro' is a fascinating exploration of what happens to a morally vacuous man as he grows old.’ ★★★★ Joseph Watson, Time Out

‘As a character portrait, this film works: Servillo judges the amount of charm, bluster and oiliness just right. His Silvio slithers and fascinates, like a snake.’ Tom Shone, The Sunday Times
