A man sits in a small restaurant at a crossroads in Rome, taking wishes from people who seek him out. Some wants to recover from an illness, others want a night with the woman of their dreams. No wish is too big or too small, they can all be granted. Nothing is free however, and the price is always very high. Kerstin Gezelius at Dagens Nyheter writes: “It's an impressive movie. The mood in the bar, the light and shadow that keeps the tension alive and gives poetry to the allegory. It weights biblical starkness against immense human love. Like a song by Leonard Cohen." Director Paolo Genovese has previously directed the critically acclaimed Perfect strangers.
