Director:Andrea Molaioli

Italy  110mins

Glossy thriller charting the fall of one of the best known Italian companies, Parmalat.  Sumptuously shot and tightly scripted it features another tour de force performance by Toni Servillo (Consequences of Love, Il Divo) as the long-suffering and loyal finance director.  You may not have heard of Parmalat but fraud and financial misdemeanour  are very much in the news and this is a great study of how one of the biggest and most successful companies of the 20th century met its demise.
