The film

Synopsis

The Family Friend intensely explores extreme emotions whilst playing out a clever confidence-trick crime plot. In a small town, an ageing loan shark who lives with his mother is undone by greed and his fatal attraction to a beautiful young woman. Geremia de' Geremei is 70. A usurer, ugly, filthy, rich and tight-fisted, cynical and ironic. He has a sick and obsessional relation with everything: his mother, his father, money, women. Life itself. That's why he thinks he's lonely. But in fact he is not alone.
