A modern Medici
27 November 2016 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

Roberto Ando's 'Viva La Liberta' is a beautifully shot political satire: the composition of the images in the film are truly exceptional. It stars Toni Servillo who plays a pair of twin brothers with impressive subtlety: one a burnt-out senior politician who vanished on an unannounced retreat, the other his mischievous twin brother who is drafted in to take his place. The latter uses the techniques of Cosimo di Medici, and rises to a peak of personal popularity through the use of gnomic speeches which allow everyone to project their own fears and desires onto him: he seems to be the first honest politician, even though his words have little underlying meaning. Ultimately the film didn't quite (to me) fully deliver on its premise: there is no single moment of dramatic resolution, and it's unclear whether the final message is actually anything stronger than " a change is as good as a rest". But it's worth watching for the quality of its cinematography and acting.
