"Habemus Papam" is showing at the 2011 New Italian Cinema Festival in San Francisco, November 20th, 6:30pm, and 9:15pm. A pope on the lam forms the crux of this charming film about faith, psychiatry and the transformative power of volleyball. At the Vatican it's time to select a new leader, and the conclave of cardinals selects a surprising choice named Melville. When it comes time to address and bless the public throng in Saint Peter's Square, however, the candidate panics, and officials are forced to bring in a noted psychiatrist to stave off a crisis. Brilliant comic bits abound as the shrink is prevented from asking Melville any kind of substantive questions, and the situation deteriorates further when the pope escapes from the Vatican and begins exploring life on the outside. Sending up another powerful institution-the Church-as he did the Italian government in Il Caimano, Moretti has crafted a light but resonant social comedy. Alla morte del Pontefice il Conclave deve eleggere un nuovo Papa. Ma il neoeletto egrave; preda dei dubbi e delle ansie, depresso e timoroso di non essere in grado di assolvere il suo compito. Il Vaticano chiama allora uno psicanalista percheacute; lo assista e lo aiuti a superare i suoi problemi.
