In one of the most acclaimed Italian films in recent years, director Matteo Garrone tells the engaging, sometimes comic story of Peppino (Ernesto Mahieux), a middle-aged dwarf and skilled taxidermist who becomes obsessed with a tall, hunky young man (Valerio Foglia Manzillo) with a friendly disposition and a passion for animals. The men's friendship blossoms until a young woman (Elisabetta Rocchetti) comes between them and a unique love triangle develops. Winner of two Italian Academy Awards, for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Mahieux). (Fully subtitled) Official Web Site
