Or how about this scene for cinematic inspiration? You don't even need subtitles.
Two weeks ago I went to see Sorrentino's latest: "Il Divo". It won the 2008 Cannes Jury prize.
The movie is about the real character of Giulio Andreotti, who was prime minister of Italy
The film is a stylish, funny, energetic film about a man whose entire attitude to life seems to be tight-lipped, sardonic, wily. Andreotti is a shrewd man with a quick mind who seems to have studied his acquaintances, his peers very carefully. His every move is a chess move, designed to take advantage.
The film does a terrific job of mocking the man and the whole enterprise of power. Framing certain scenes in funny ways, ridicules the situation and the characters very effectively, without getting them to say ridiculous things.
I enjoyed it thoroughly.
An examination of his daily routines, that often started at 4am and involved a deep relationship with the Church.
The scene which depicts his supposed meeting with mafia bosses, an event never proven. Notice the subversion of the whole thing.
