ABOUT THE LITHIUM CONSPIRACY



Director: Davide Marengo – 2012 Italy - 104 mins
In Italian with English subtitles - American Premiere

Giulio Rovedo ha trentacinque anni, due figlie e una moglie, Valeria, che vuole riconquistare. È avvocato del Banco Lario che viene acquistato dalla Newlight, una banca d'affari internazionale. La sua routine viene interrotta dall'arrivo della nuova direttrice, Cecilia Swartz, che lo catapulta in un intrigo internazionale tra Sud America ed Europa …





Since it is adapted from a novel by Italian writer Tullio Aveledo, The Lithium Conspiracy is a deliberate and finely-detailed cautionary tale as filling as a good Italian meal.Eddie Cockrell



Nowadays you don't conquer a country ... You buy it.

Giulio, torn between a wife who's labeled him a workaholic and a job that seems to have no future after a banking merge, is being practically pushed on a plane to a place called Queimada in South America. He's given no information on what he should be doing with the criptic statement "the less you know, the better”…

An imaginative, sinewy thriller about international banking corruption and corporate greed, The Lithium Conspiracy taps into global apprehension over financial mergers and exploitation of natural resources to emerge a colorful, tautly entertaining morality play. When his boss is incapacitated by a sports injury, Banco Lario lawyer Giulio Rovedo (Guido Caprino) is entrusted with solving a mysterious "code 37" overseas crisis that intensifies exponentially when the bank is suddenly taken over by a sinister conglomerate, Newlight. Leaving behind a troubled marriage in Torino, Giulio is whisked off to the South American banana republic of Queimada by his beautiful yet cryptic new superior, Cecilia Schwartz (Carolina Crescentini). Once there, he becomes enmeshed in local politics and intrigue revolving around a massive deposit of the eponymous element.
