One Man Up

by Paolo Sorrentino

Synopsis

Two men share the same name, Tony and Antonio Pisapia, the first a pop singer, the second a footballer in the premier league. They have opposite characters but in 1980 both are blessed by fortune and success, even if destiny has turned against them. Tony is accused of sexual harassment, Antonio fractures his knee. Four years later, in 1984, Tony and Antonio’s lights are fading and intermittent. One day Tony and Antonio meet, they stare hard at each other without uttering a word. They understand that they have shared a piece of life. Their reaction to a difficult destiny will be opposite: The surrender of one will lead to the redemption of the other.
