The Italian “Liar” redo,
The Italian “Liar” redo has been commissioned by Mediaset, Italy’s top private broadcaster – controlled by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi – as part of the company’s ongoing effort to ramp up scripted content production and improve its quality after several of their local dramas flopped.

The show itself is a miniseries spread into four television movies Unauthorized Investigation, Carte Blanche, The Damned Season and Via Della Oche. The first two movies are based during the time when Mussolini was in power and the fascist state was at full power.

Ferzan Ozpetek’s comedy drama Loose Cannons springs a few surprises – not least the long-forgotten voices of Spanish disco duo Baccara on the soundtrack. The dubious musical selections sound a jarring note in what is otherwise a witty and well-crafted tale of dysfunction within a bourgeois Italian family. To borrow that memorable last line from one of the greatest screen comedies: “Nobody’s perfect.”
Tommaso Cantone (Riccardo Scamarcio) and his elder brother Antonio (Alessandro Preziosi) are about to take over the reins of the family’s pasta business in southern Italy.

Less a brand-new vision of the future than an upgrade of the old one, this reboot delivers digital thrills beyond your wildest electric dreams, but ties itself in knots with an analogue-era plot.

A rags-to-riches showbiz fable that makes Mariah Carey's Glitter look self-effacing and Showgirls avant garde. The mask of Cher presides over a bitchy La club where Aguilera's talent for warbling while modelling frilly lingerie eventually shines through.
