20 Anni Fa: 3 Gems from the past
In Paolo Sorrentino’s acclaimed, award-winning psychological thriller, we meet Toni Servillo as a lonely and secretive Italian businessman living in a Swiss hotel. As punishment for his huge loss in the stock market, Titta di Girolamo (Servillo) is marooned in Switzerland. His sentence includes that every week, for the rest of his life, he is required to deliver a suitcase of laundered mafia money to a Swiss bank. Now, approaching nine years in this condition, Titta is losing his grip on the real world, and any semblance of life in it.
