Actor Giacomo Rizzo is expected to attend

A harsh near-nihilism pervades the singular vision of director Paolo Sorrentino in this morally dark tale. Geremia de’ Geremei is a shabby loan shark who professes a deep (and deeply false) concern for the poor people who use his services. The film exposes the damage done by his squalid, soul-disfiguring line of work.
