From the acclaimed director of GOMORRAH, Matteo Garrone, REALITY takes audiences on a emotionally charged journey through the heightened reality of Italy's obsession with TV and celebrity culture. A funny, incisive satire on the very nature of truth and illusion, REALITY is the story of Luciano, a garrulous Neopolitan fishmongerwho supplements his modest income by pulling off little scams together with his wife Maria. A likeable, entertaining guy, Luciano never misses an opportunity to perform for his customers and countless relatives . But Luciano's unexpected and sudden obsession with being a contestant on a reality show leads him down a rabbit hole of skewed perceptions and paranoia. Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2012. Awards Winner Grand Prix Cannes Film Festival 2012
