- (HABEMUS PAPAM) 2011, Nanni Moretti, Italy/France, 102 min. With Michel Piccoli, Nanni Moretti “Has great heart…much of it comes from Piccoli.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times “A rapturous performance by Michel Piccoli…Moretti lights up every scene he’s in as the brash, bossy shrink.” —Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter A newly elected pope (Piccoli) with a bad case of cold feet hightails it out of the Vatican to explore Rome incognito, while his unfortunate psychiatrist (Moretti) ends up sequestered in the cardinals’ conclave. An affectionate take on a papal election that yields a reluctant winner may come as a surprising choice for director/actor Nanni Moretti (THE SON’S ROOM, DEAR DIARY), a self-proclaimed non-believer, but this comedy/drama mixing Vatican ceremony, silliness, psychoanalysis, volleyball, and Chekhov approaches its subject with wry humor, keeping the focus on human fallibility. In Italian, German, Latin, and English with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
