The Entrepreneur
2011 Drama Italian with English subtitles 97 mins

2012 Italian Golden Globes: Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, Special Jury Award; 2011 Rome Film Festival: LARA Award

Giuliano Montaldo’s muti-award winning taut drama tells the story of factory owner Nicola Ranieri who is struggling both professionally and emotionally. The banks are foreclosing and pride has taken him to the brink of ruin as he refuses to use his wife’s wealth and family name as a guarantor against further loans. He is just days away from bankruptcy unless the German company Zenith confirms the fifteen million euro share option deal.

But Nicola also suspects his beautiful architect wife is having an affair. Following her, he discovers a regular rendezvous with Gabriel, a Romanian musician and car park attendant. Attempting to secretly help her husband financially, Laura finds herself instead at the centre of Nicola’s intense jealousy, which leads to tragic results.

With its grey, overcast winter skies, Turin is a city paralysed by the financial crisis. Deserted factories, almost empty streets and the distant sound of protest provide the backdrop for this incisive yet deeply personal film that shows just how quickly and easily the economic crisis can destroy individual lives.

“Short, tough and intelligent, ‘The Entrepreneur’ is a rich movie parable that’s unapologetically stylised and melodramatic (in the best way).” SBS films, Australia
