The Family Friend

by Paolo Sorrentino

Synopsis

Geremia de’ Geremei is a seventy year-old loan shark, extremely ugly, rich, filthy, stingy, cynical and ironic. He has a morbid and obsessive relationship with money. Everything contributes in making him into a sick being: his mother, father, money, women, life! That is why he feels so alone. But in reality he is not.  We are all with him.
