Famous director Franco Elica (played sublimely by the wonderful Castellitto) flees from scandal in Rome to Sicily, and becomes embroiled in filming the wedding of a rich man’s beautiful daughter. Bellocchio is at his most satirical and playful with this movie-within-a-movie, which also offers a brilliant deliberation on the art of cinema and the profession of filmmaking.
