Habemus papam, directed by Nanni Moretti, IT, 102 min, IT + CZ subtitles
Habemus papam! is a modern classic, a comedy about a newly elected pope, that panics and refuses to be named Pope. Nani Moretti shows us the closed world of the conclave and the Vatican, but instead of adding to conspirations, he makes it more human and humorous. In Moretti’s world the Cardinals do not crave power, but the beg God, not to have theme elected, they try to solve the new Popes problem through psychoanalysis and organize a volleyball tournament for themselves. Absurd moments are a pillar of Moretti’s humor, but the film also includes exceptional dialogues.
