Nanni Moretti directs this gently comical Italian drama about a newly elected Pope struggling to come to terms with his new role. French actor Michel Piccoli stars as the bemused Pontiff, whose quiet contemplative demeanour gives way to performance anxiety verging on hysteria as he finds himself overwhelmed by the pressure of the job and the vast crowds of Catholics gathering outside the papal palace to hear him speak. A psychoanalyst (played by the director) is brought in to help, but with the usual subjects of sexual desire and unfulfilled fantasies strictly off-limits, there is only so much he is able to do.
