Daily Buzz speaks with renowned Italian film director Nanni Moretti mid-fest at the 40th Edition of the Toronto International Film Festival in the Empire Room of the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. Daily Buzz host John Wildman asks this former 2012 Cannes Jury President about debuting his film earlier this spring at Cannes, why he didn’t play the alter ego in this film — which is something he does often does in his films — what the film’s connection is to Italy and politics, working with John Turturro, and whether he considers this film a drama or a comedy.
