Long Live Freedom
Director Roberto Ando's timely political 'dramady' uncannily presaged Italy's national elections held last year. The story begins with Olivieri (Toni Servillo), the disillusioned leader of a party resembling Italy's Partito Democratico, who 'escapes' in the middle of an election campaign. Olivieri's handler, Andrea (Valerio Mastandrea), is left desperate and he convinces Olivieri's twin, Giovanni (also played by Servillo), a philosophy professor just out of a psychiatric hospital, to masquerade as his brother.
