Seduction, glamour, corruption, drugs and raucous poolside parties: the life and times of scandal-plagued Silvio Berlusconi reach the screens in spectacular fashion in this dazzling, topical and no-holds-barred look at the Europe's most infamous politician. The complex personality and motivations of the billionaire former Prime Minister (Toni Servillo) are scrutinised during a tumultuous period in his career, as his marriage to second wife Veronica Lario (Elena Sofia Ricci) fractures. At the same time the stories of a wide variety of characters from multiple levels of society and their attempts to either ingratiate or distance themselves from him are skilfully thread together.
