Critics Consensus

Loro uses the larger-than-life exploits of an infamous public figure to present a messily compelling snapshot of how power attracts -- and corrupts.

Movie Info

Seduction, glamour, corruption, drugs and raucous poolside parties: the life and times of scandal-plagued Silvio Berlusconi have long-demanded a screen depiction, and who else to deliver it than Paolo Sorrentino, the Academy Award-winning director of The Great Beauty and The Young Pope, who returns to cinema in spectacular fashion with this dazzling, topical and no-holds-barred look at life in Italy under the glistening eye of modern Europe's most infamous politician. With LORO, Sorrentino gradually unpeels the complex personality and motivations of the billionaire former Prime Minister - played with unmistakable panache by Toni Servillo - during a tumultuous period in his career, as his marriage to second wife Veronica Lario (Elena Sofia Ricci) fractures; all the while skilfully threading together stories of a wide variety of characters from multiple levels of society and their attempts to either ingratiate or distance themselves from him... Boldly and controversially speculating on what may or may not have taken place behind closed doors, LORO (which translates as 'Them') offers a timely commentary on the excesses and follies of the power-hungry.

Critic Reviews for Loro

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (40) | Rotten (8)

  • It's tonally all over the place, and significant characters disappear without warning. Yet the force and style of the storytelling, plus Toni Servillo's bravura performance as Berlusconi, often paper over those cracks.

  • Toni Servillo is compelling as ever, but there's not enough bite here.

  • Sometimes whimsical, sometimes gruellingly sordid, sometimes wayward in those Fellini-esque departures and dreamlike epiphanies of which Sorrentino has made himself such a master.

  • It's easy to get lost in the Bacchanalian orgies, but at its heart 'Loro' is a fascinating exploration of what happens to a morally vacuous man as he grows old.

  • [Paolo Sorrentino] embraces the corruption, the vulgarity and the extravagance with a certain tenderness, rather than envy.

  • There are enough fantastic sequences in Loro, and another great performance from Servillo, but this is a slight disappointment given what we've come to expect from Sorrentino.
