Italian director Carmine Amoroso's politically tinged, slice-of-life seriocomedy Cover Boy... Last Revolution details the wild, unpredictable, and bittersweet experiences of Ioan (Eduard Gabia), an illegal Romanian immigrant who passes into Italy undetected and attempts to eke out a life for himself in the land of Caesar. After an introductory montage of stock footage dramatizing Romanian political history -- including the fall of Ceausescu -- Amoroso moves into Ioan's personal story. When his father, Florin (Gabriel Spahiu), is shot dead in Bucharest, Ioan accepts an invitation from a friend to travel with him to Italy, but en route, authorities discover the friend's illegal immigrant status and promptly deport him, leaving Ioan to fend for himself. In a seemingly chance encounter, the young traveler meets Michele (Luca Lionello), a fourtysomething who promptly invites Ioan to share a room with him -- never admitting his sublimated gay attraction to the newcomer. For a time, Ioan struggles to keep himself afloat with menial jobs -- until a sexy and enterprising young fashion photographer notices Ioan and sees in him Milan's freshest modeling sensation. She thus ensures that Ioan's life will never be the same. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
