In his crazy, mad, lampoon of hatred, director Alberto Caviglia pulls out all the stops in this hilarious film about a boy who loves to hate and devotes his life to promoting antisemitism. You heard me; it’s a comedy.
It’s July 2006 and Leonardo Zuliani is missing, the whole world is glued to the tv, watching a documentary on the life of the young “hero” who no one has seen for 6 months.
Beginning with his childhood, friends, family, and teachers are interviewed, talking about the boy that everyone always knew was “special” and showed an aptitude for inspiring and leading people. One of his best friends was the grandmother of a classmate, an old woman who enjoyed telling immigrants to get out of her country, even when she just thinks they are.
As an adult, he was adored for his chain of all pork fast food restaurants, one proudly located next to Anne Frank’s house, and for rewriting the Bible, removing every mention of a Jew or anything Jewish.
Starring Davide Giordano, Anna Ferruzzo, Omero Antonutti, Bianca Nappi, Mimosa Campironi, Alberto Di Stasio and Lorenza Indovina, with clever cameos by Carolina Crescentini and Vinicio Marchioni, it was a real crowd pleaser at #Venice2015 and you’ll love it too!
