Description
With a birthmark on his forehead resembling that of a certain Russian politician, Neapolitan prison cashier Marino (nicknamed Gorbaciof for obvious reasons and played by Toni Servillo) is a dour man with a routine life. He works and he gambles, sometimes pilfering from one endeavor to finance the other. Matters change, however, when he meets the daughter of the Chinese restaurateur with whom he plays poker and begins to court her. Returning to film’s visual essence, cowriter/director Incerti depicts his taciturn protagonist’s life with sparseness and immediacy, bolstered by Servillo’s impeccable performance.
