Due to his exotic wife’s insatiable desire for a life of luxury he is heavily in debt and on the verge of poverty. Desperate with nowhere to turn Giovanni decides that his only way out is to end his life. That is until he finds out that an incredibly wealthy man is offering a large sum of money to anyone who’s willing to give up an eyeball. Released for the first time in the U.K., Il Boom is a hilarious, one of a kind, bittersweet comedy from ground breaking Academy Award® winning director Vittorio De Sica (Bicycle Thieves).
