Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum: HABEMUS PAPAM! No, we do not have a new pope, but what we do have is Nanni Moretti’s 2011 amiable comedy Habemus Papam, an entertaining and even prophetic film depicting the Sistine Chapel conclave and the election of a reluctant, panic-stricken, aged man to the papacy. Praised by the Radio Vaticana for its faithful representation of the conclave’s inner workings and for its accurate sets, the film is as humorous as it is moving.
Directed by Nanni Moretti | 2011 | 102 min. | In Italian with English subtitles.
