Sorrentino’s debut feature stars Toni Servillo as Tony Pisapia, an aging crooner, cokehead and lothario, frequently bedding women younger than his daughter. When he’s caught with an underage girl, his career hits the skids. In a parallel plotline, another man with the same name (unrelated and ten years younger) finds his soccer career squashed by an untimely injury. With surreal dream sequences and potent ideas about destiny and morality, One Man Up is a dark and ambitious (and rarely screened) film that heralded the brilliant career that was to come.
