Dir. Matteo Garrone (2002). A charismatic cast enlivens this tale of a handsome young man who gets a job as assistant to a middle-aged gay dwarf taxidermist and soon discovers that his boss also works for the Mafia and may have designs on him. Valerio Foglia Manzillo is a knockout hunk with great star potential; Ernesto Mahieux is unsettling as the queer little bugger.
