Il divo is the biographical portrait of seven-time Italian prime minister Giulio Andreotti. It is compelling and thought-provoking and reflects the impenetrability that kept this adept politician in power for decades. Even his wife, Livia, realizes that she like others really doesn't know her husband at all.

  • 68 pages, softcover

  • No DVD included.
