directed by Simone Scafidi
Sex. Scandals. Politics. An Italian story.
Inspired by the Italian sex scandals of the Berlusconi era. Pier is a powerful and important Mogul who holds the power in his Country. Elegant, ironic and well educated, he has bizarre sexual instincts which are satisfied by his employee and once girlfriend, Romy. For him, she recruits men and women, with aspirations of success (musicians, directors, writers and businessmen), willing to become sex slaves. In Pier’s childhood villa, they spend a few days satisfying his weird fantasies of sadism and bizarre perversion, in exchange for his advice and support to achieve their dreams of success. Like a Decameron, a group of people in a house trade their pride and for power and money. Eva Braun is Pier and Romy’s daughter, the Symbol behind the compromises of Love.
