Pierfrancesco Favino wants you to go to the official page of his new film, in theaters now, Senza Nessuna Pietà and post a selfie in front of a movie theater with your movie ticket. The first ones to do it will win a Senza Nessuna Pietà t-shirt.
Favino gained fifty pounds and shows every bit of his star potential in director Michele Alhaique’s film about Mimmo, played by Favino, part of a crime family but happier at his day job as a construction worker. Having been left fatherless at an early age, his uncle raised him and expects his bruiser nephew to provide muscle when debts need to be collected. Mimmo is perfectly capable but clearly unhappy about his lot in life, destined, it seems, to live it out in a clinically depressed state.
When his spoiled and obnoxious cousin Manuel (Adriano Giannini) wants him to pick up and babysit a young prostitute, played by the very beautiful Greta Scarano, a protective side emerges from Mimmo. “Tanya” has been hired for a party but when delivered to Manuel, Mimmo sees that she’s in trouble and comes to her rescue, knowing full well that in doing so he’s signed his own death warrant.
