This French-produced documentary from Italian documentarist Daniele Incalcaterra attempts to provide insight into the complicated almost chaotic Italian political system as it follows the 10 month's that Silvio Berlusconi and his cabinet were in power. It was a tumultuous time for post WW II Italy, a time when the media had plenty of power and government corruption ran amok. Rather than try to explain everything and everyone involved in the fiasco that was Berlusconi's government, the filmmakers concentrate on four primary players, Piercamillo Davigo, Antonio Di Pietro, two prominent judges, and two election candidates, Alvaro Superchi, who worked at the Alfa Romeo factory and was affiliated with the Party of the Democratic Left and Gianni Pilo, representing Berlusconi's position.
