Who wouldn't want to be the Pope? Certainly not Cardinal Melville (Michel Piccoli)─unfortunately, he's the man the College of Cardinals has chosen to become the next pontiff! Encouraged to accept the position (because it's too late for anything else) by his peers, Melville is directed to consult a Vatican psychiatrist (director/co-writer Nanni Moretti) to calm his nerves and lift his troubled spirits. Warm and humorous Italian film co-stars Jerzy Stuhr, Renato Scarpa. 105 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Italian; Subtitles: English. In Italian with English subtitles.
