Plot Summary: In his latest comedy, "We Have a Pope," Palme d'Or-winner Nanni Moretti ("The Son's Room") joins forces with the great French actor Michel Piccoli ("Contempt") to tell the story of Melville, a cardinal who suddenly finds himself elected as the next Pope. Never before in the spotlight and completely caught off guard, he panics as he's presented to the faithful in St. Peter's Square. To prevent a worldwide crisis, the Vatican calls in an unlikely psychiatrist who is neither religious or all that committed, played by Moretti, to find out what is wrong with the new Pope and come to a solution. "We Have a Pope" gives marvelous insight into the concept of a human being existing behind the title of God's representative on Earth, approaching a serious topic with Moretti's wonderful blend of humor and humanism.
