Giuliano Montaldo, born in 1930, is the anthropomorphic transliteration of legend and law. Some refer to him as the “Lion King” of Italian cinema; still able to scratch, stun and roar like few others today. In the Film L’industriale (The Entrepreneur), Montaldo portrays a modernistic socio-economic and emotional crisis using classical staging.
The characters, Nicola and Laura, along with their friends and family come to life and struggle to go out from the dilemma of Eurozone’s economic crises and its consequences that stretched from Nicola’s inherited factory to his private life at home. Nicola, on the brink of bankruptcy, inherited a factory in Turin from his father at the age of 40.
