Matteo Garrone in The Embalmer

The Embalmer

2002 UR

Ernesto Mahieux plays Peppino, a taxidermist infatuated with his hunky assistant, Valerio (Valerio Foglia Manzillo). To curry favor, Peppino takes Valerio out on the town and sets him up with prostitutes -- activities paid for in part by his strange dealings with the Mob. But when Valerio starts a relationship with the idealistic Deborah (Elisabetta Rocchetti), the two men's odd friendship takes a backseat, pushing Peppino to the brink.
