Paolo Sorrentino's effortlessly stylish film centres on Geremia di Geremei, a sleazy and misanthropic small-time loan shark who lives in a dingy apartment with his invalid mother. When a cash - strapped couple approach him for a loan to pay for the wedding of their daughter Rosalba, Geremia finds himself helplessly obsessed by the bride-to-be's stunning beauty and takes full advantage of his self proclaimed position as 'a friend of the family' to get as close to her as possible. But in the icily disdainful Rosalba, he may finally have met his match.
Giacomo Rizzo gives a brilliant performance as the loathsome money lender in this highly original, visually dazzling and blackly comic suspense filled drama.
