We Have a Pope
Italian comedy-drama. When the pope dies, a conclave of cardinals is called at the Vatican to elect a successor. After a few rounds of inconclusive votes, there is still no clear frontrunner until an unlikely winner, Cardinal Melville, is finally chosen. As the Church prepares to announce the new pontiff to the world, the newly elected pope, overwhelmed by doubt, has a panic attack and refuses to appear. The Church is thrown into a state of secret turmoil, its helplessness such that a psychoanalyst is called in to examine the new pope's broken-down mental state.
