THEM WHO? is a sophisticated and hilarious comedy that’s cleverly interlaced with surprises and non-stop action.
Davide (Edoardo Leo) is an unsuccessful novelist who has spent a decade trying to get his book published. He ends up working as the communications manager for a household products company, and is given the opportunity to present the firm’s revolutionary industrial patent. But his despondency makes him easy prey for con artist Marcello (Marco Giallini), and he loses everything - his house, his girlfriend, and all his money.
With his life turned upside down, Davide decides to use his journalist's nose to track down Marcello. A little detective work leads him to a rock band called “Loro Chi?” (Them Who?), a cult band that only performs at secret pop-up shows.
When Davide finally encounters Marcello, he becomes fascinated and then intrigued by Marcello’s lavish and easy going life style, and instead of getting his revenge, the two pair up. Between quarrels and complicity, this odd couple develop a relationship that is mutually beneficial and a lot of fun to watch.
Edoardo Leo is one of Italy’s best contemporary actors and has won over 15 festival awards.
