    • Synopsis
    • Some favours cannot be refused. Anthony Polsinelli agrees to write a love letter for Dario, an Italian gigolo. When Dario is murdered, Anthony finds his friend has left him a small vineyard somewhere in Italy. The wine is undrinkable but an elaborate has been set up. The smell of easy money attracts the unwanted attentions of the mafia and the Vatican and the unbridled hatred of the locals. A darkly iconoclastic tale. A story of wine, miracles and even love. "Holy Money" is the the adaptation in English of the best-seller "Holy Smoke" by Tonino Benacquista (2 Cesar Awards). "Holy Smoke" won three prizes in one year.
