Official Trailer for Nanni Moretti's Papal Comedy 'We Have a Pope'
"A billion people are waiting for you." IFC Films and Sundance Selects have unveiled an official trailer (via Deadline) for Nanni Moretti's We Have a Pope, an Italian indie dramatic comedy that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year, as Moretti is a Palme d'Or winning director. The film, starring French actor Michel Piccoli and Nanni Moretti, is about an elderly cardinal elected to be the new Pope, but can't handle taking on the job, so they bring in a psychiatrist. It plays like a very lighthearted and amusing comedy about the extraordinary task of becoming the Pope. Looks like a good watch if this intrigues you, take a look below.

In his latest comedy, We Have a Pope (aka Habemus Papam), Palme d'Or-winner Nanni Moretti (Aprile, The Son's Room, The Caiman) joins forces with the great French actor Michel Piccoli to tell the story of Melville, a cardinal who suddenly finds himself elected as the next Pope. Never before in the spotlight and completely caught off guard, he panics as he's presented to the faithful in St. Peter's Square. To prevent a worldwide crisis, the Vatican calls in an unlikely psychiatrist who is neither religious or all that committed, played by Moretti, to find out what is wrong with the new Pope and come to a solution. It first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Sundance Select will open in limited theaters April 6th, plus VOD on April 11th.
