Storyline

Ernesto Bolta is the accountant of LEDA, a big agribusiness. Its founder, Amanzio Rastelli, appointed several of his relations to managerial positions and the firm decided quite lightly to think internationally and now it is heavily in debt. Luckily for the Rastellis, Bolta is on the watch. He uses all the tricks of his art to cook the books. But rushing headlong will not avoid the coming catastrophe... Written by Guy Bellinger

Don't miss this one!
13 January 2012 | by iik71See all my reviews

Usually I don't like the Italian films because they are somehow naive. Surprisingly in that one, the actors play at a very high level. Servillo is on top as usually. Realistically made​​, the film describes the real events surrounding the collapse of a large Italian company producing dairy products. If not mistaken, the actual prototype is Parmalat.

Other interesting titles like this theme are: - The Inside Job (although documentary,very interesting), which depicts the premises and the development of American financial crisis of 2008 caused deliberately by the financial circles, the government and a whole host U.S. presidents. While in The Jewel the abuse is focused around the company's management. - Margine Call. Describes the collapse of one of the banks that provoked the financial crisis 2008. Pretty unrealistic in comparison to The Jewel. - Boiler room - a financial crash micro cosmos.

Do not miss this film.
