HABEMUS PAPAM poderia ter sido uma feroz sátira que profana os costumes relacionados com a eleição do Sumo Pontífice, uma reflexão mais profunda sobre a perda de espiritualidade, mas Nanni Moretti não se atreveu a ir em frente com seu plano. Fez um filme raso, não exatamente ruim, mas tão pouco excepcional. Sim, habemos papam, mas e Moretti? Habemos Moretti?
Comedic drama about a newly elected Pope who, feeling overwhelmed by his newfound responsibilities, escapes from the Vatican to explore his past, reflect on his election, and experience life for the first time. All the while, the faithful wait with bated breath to learn the new Pontiff's identity while the cardinals remain in Conclave. Charming but somewhat slight, leaving much thematic depth unexplored.
Après "Le Caiman" MORETTI continue de représenter les facettes de l'Italie. Et porte un regard affectueux sur un vieil homme qui peine à accepter les fonctions pour laquelle il a été élu. ====== After "The Caiman" MORETTI continues to represent facets of Italy. And carries an affectionate look at an old man who is struggling to decide whether to accept the duties for which he was elected.
Not the best Moretti's movie. Probably making a movie with Fandango for the first time took its toll for economical reasons and the movie seems rushed especially in the edit.
The story is the perfect and laical portrait of a pope that feels the heaviness of human condition. It foresaw what happened later to Benedict XVI.
