GENRE: Drama Film

SYNOPSIS: Played impeccably by Willem Dafoe, the titular hero of the latest offering from ex-bad boy Abel Ferrara feels at home in Rome, and he even enjoys struggling with his Italian. But he also sees a change in outlook overtaking his young wife Nikki, with whom he has a little girl, Dee Dee, the apple of his eye. The American artist’s day to day existence, hovering between reality and, too often, precarious fantasy, is punctuated by both the fulfilling and frustrating encounters Tommaso has with the “possessors” of various destinies and with himself. Ferrara continues his probe into the unsettlingly dark side of our existence in a supremely unexpected fashion, via a film so intense it takes your breath away.
