Berlusconi mulls own biopic

MUMBAI: Former Italian prime minister and media tycoon Silvio Berlusconi has expressed his wish of a film be made about his life and needs to find the right director, it is reported.

Berlusconi, 75, made the announcement about his desire to make a film of his life on Tuesday, the 18th anniversary of his entry into Italian politics. He served as prime minister for only seven months back in 1995, but for the ten-year period ending last November, he was prime minister for all but 18 months.

Born into a middle class family, Berlusconi built Europe‘s largest media empire and became the most transformational Italian political leader since World War II. This makes his life colourful enough to entertain on the silver screen.
It wouldn‘t be the first film with Berlusconi as a subject. Nanni Moretti‘s Il Caimano (The Caiman) from 2006 which skewered Berlusconi appeared in competition in Cannes; Videocracy, a controversial documentary about Berlusconi‘s television empire from Erik Gandini, screened at the Venice Film Festival in 2009; and Silvio Forever, another critical documentary from Roberto Faenza, made its rounds last year.

Berlusconi would presumably pen the film adaptation of his life story.

One director who says he might be interested in making a Berlusconi film is well-known Italian funnyman Carlo Verdone, who bears a resemblance to the Italian leader.
