Synopsis

Jep Gambardella, a 65-year-old journalist, lives among Rome’s decadent high society in a swirl of rooftop parties and late-night soirees. But when he learns of the death of his friend’s wife, a woman he once loved, his life is thrown into perspective and he begins to see the world through new eyes.

MUBI's take

An ornate and eye-popping extravaganza, Paolo Sorrentino’s dazzling, suitably self-conscious spectacle conceals a despairing satire, a nauseous indictment of the glamorous facade and moral bankruptcy of Italy’s recent Berlusconi era. Winner of the Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language film.
