Actor/director Nanni Moretti (Quiet Chaos) joins forces with legendary French actor Michel Piccoli (Contempt) to tell the story of Cardinal Melville, an unassuming man of the cloth who suddenly finds himself elected as the next Pope. Caught off guard and unwilling to take the job, Melville panics as the faithful wait for the new Pope’s appearance in St. Peter‘s Square. To prevent a worldwide crisis, the Vatican calls in an unlikely psychiatrist (Moretti) to find out what is wrong with Melville and get him to take the position. While the world nervously waits outside, inside the therapist works desperately with Melville to rid him of his fears and reaffirm his duty to God. A marvelous insight into the man responsible for being God’s representative on Earth, WE HAVE A POPE is both wonderfully humorous and deeply touching.
