Habemus Papam

We Have a Pope

A new Pope is being elected in Rome and, after a few false starts, the conclave of Catholic Cardinals makes its decision and white smoke issues, to symbolically announce the news.

The problem is that the French Pope-elect (wonderfully personified by the legendary Michel Piccoli) then suffers an immediate crisis of confidence and the frustrated, sequestered Cardinals seek secret assistance from a sceptical psychotherapist (played by Nanni Moretti).
