Good but just a few of clues for a movie that generally is approximate, touching lightly comedy without making you really laugh and human drama staying on the surface, without even pick the timing: a very long prologue of 17 minutes or so about Bruno - a little film producer on the brink of failing with his job and private life - bored me while I was waiting for the real movie to start.

“Good but just a few of clues for a movie that generally is approximate, touching lightly comedy without making you really laugh and human drama staying on the surface, without even pick the timing: a very long prologue of 17 minutes or so about Bruno - a little film producer on the brink of failing with his job and private life - bored me while I was waiting for the real movie to start. I'd prefer to hear about this through a deeper and more diluited story, that could explain better the reasons of his failure.

After director Franco Caspio (Giuliano Montaldo) quits the project, Bonomo offers another screenplay, "Il Caimano", a screenplay, written by young director Teresa (Jasmine Trinca). Soon, Bruno discovers that the Caimano is none other than Berlusconi, Italy's prime minister and media tycoon – and a subject so controversial that even the public television refuses to produce it.

Meanwhile, Bonomo's private life collapses piece by piece; plans to separate from wife Paola (Margherita Buy) come to terms, and the bank is pressing him hard to pay back his debts.
