Sabina Guzzanti's satirical documentary concerns with her own ill-fated television show, RAIot, which aired on RAI, the Italian public television service. The show featured comedy sketches in which Guzzanti, a brilliant clown, mimic, and physical comedienne, skewered the current Italian administration, and, most wickedly, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
When her TV show was canceled after Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's media corporation filed a 20-million-euro lawsuit, she got serious, sort of. Following in the footsteps of Michael Moore, but far more talented at imitating her target, Guzzanti exposes the seedy underbelly of Berlusconi's right-wing regime in this viciously funny documentary.
