Synopsis

Michele criticizes the film industry and its inhabitants and is particularly embattled with a Neapolitan director making a musical about the 1968 student demonstrations. At the same time, Michele has a creative block to finishing his film titled Freud’s Mother.

Our take

Nanni Moretti’s self-inquiry into filmmaking, political ennui, and men’s relations with their mothers. Sound familiar? Yet this film only expands on those which came before it with a more intimate confessional style aimed at the state of modern Italy.
