The Audience

A laboured satire of Vatican bureaucracy, this tells a would-be Kafkaesque story of a supplicant's vain attempts to get to the Pope. Only the devoutest Catholics will be able to stay awake to be outraged. As usual, Ferreri avoids the clich├ęs of 'realism', but his mixture of high gloss, caricature, and studied seriousness is even less adequate here than in The Last Woman. TR.
