Synopsis:
Master filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino (Youth, The Great Beauty) teams up once again with longtime collaborator Toni Servillo (II Divo) to reveal the scandalous and, until now, unseen private life of Italy's most infamous politician, Silvio Berlusconi. Told from the point of view of a corrupt pimp, 'Loro' depicts a world of unbridled hedonism and greed for power with a wickedly satirical sting. Biopics don't come more unauthorised than this!

Brilliant - Loro review by IG

Spoiler Alert
18/08/2019

If you liked The Great Beauty this will be right up your street. We found this film informative, offensive, outrageous, but, above all very watchable and extremely amusing. Power corrupts and absolute power in the main gets away with it, with a cast of in the main part willing volunteers. Toni Servillo is impressive and even when his character is being essentially quite ruthless and manipulative, he still amuses.

Totally assured film-making. - Loro review by TE

Spoiler Alert
03/09/2019

This film deserves 10 stars let alone 5! A fascinating satirical take-down of Silvio Berlusconi, in which the satire is administered via both a velvet glove and a sledgehammer.

As with The Great Beauty, the filming is simply gorgeous. Every frame is like a beautiful still composition in itself.

The sets are sumptuous, and the soundtrack lives up to Sorrentino's reputation for being the world's best director of sound and image.

The clinching brilliance in Loro is the way in which Sorrentino reveals Berlusconi as a prototype for Donald Trump, in background, in personality, in megalomania, and in sleaze.

This is Sorrentino back at the top of his game.

Dreadful 1960s softcore porn - Loro review by PW

Spoiler Alert
20/06/2020

I rented this because I expected to see a bio of Berlusconi, with a bit of satire.

What we got however is an awful 1960s style softcore porn (tit and bum) film. The dialogue was banal in the extreme and there was no storyline to speak of. If there was any humour neither of us noticed it. After half an hour my wife turned to me and said "This film is complete cr*p". I agreed so we watched something else.

If you like softcore porn and dont know how to access the internet this film is for you, otherwise avoid!
