Evocatively set during the eighties, the film charts the decline of two men both named Antonio Pisapia who lead entirely separate yet strangely parallel lives. One is a pop singer who finds himself washed up after a sex scandal ends his run of success; the other a football hero whose playing career is abruptly cut short by injury. Sharply observed and featuring excellent performances from the two leads, Paolo Sorrentino's compelling film explores the personal consequences wrought by cruel reversals of fortune.
