A film by Matteo Garrone
Starring Aniello Arena, Paola Minaccioni, Loredana Simioli

Luciano is a charming fishmonger whose unexpected and sudden obsession with being a contestant on a reality show leads him down a rabbit hole of skewed perceptions and paranoia.

Reality is a big change from director Matteo Garrone, best known for his 2008 portrayal of an Italian crime syndicate in Gomorra.

Luciano is a Neapolitan fishmonger who supplements his modest income by pulling off little scams together with his wife Maria. A likeable, entertaining guy, Luciano never misses an opportunity to perform for his customers and countless relatives. One day, his family urges him to try out for Big Brother. In chasing this dream, his perception of reality begins to change.

If Luis Buñuel were alive today, this is roughly what I’d expect him to be up to. —Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
