Enzo Ferrari faces bankruptcy and personal turmoil as his drivers compete in the Mille Miglia race.


Why watch this film?

The return of director Michael Mann (Heat) after eight years away from the cinema is a film he tried to make for three decades: "Ferrari," inspired by the biography "Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine" written by Brock Yates. The film narrates a turbulent period in the life of the founder of the famous automaker (played by Adam Driver): it's 1957, his marriage to his wife and co-founder (Penélope Cruz) is in ruins, he conceals an illegitimate child with another woman (Shailene Woodley), and his company is on the brink of bankruptcy. His only hope is to bet on winning the Mille Miglia race to attract investment, a game with a delicate balance between his public reputation and private life, which he will try to control at all times. Despite the questionable Italian accents, the performances are good (Cruz, in particular, is monumental), and all elements contribute to a story about the desperation of maintaining control in the face of the consequences of the most despicable acts.
