The internal political landscape of the Soviet Russia of the 50's is the argument from the satire of Armando Iannucci ('In the Loop'), a name very quoted in the Emmys (he has won) and in the Oscars (he has been nominated ). After the collapse of Stalin's government, its core of ministers struggles to see what faction is done with control: some want positive change in the entire Soviet Union, while others have some rather sinister ideas for the future of the nation. What do they all have in common? That everyone wants and seeks to be alive the next day. The film has comedy, drama and politics in its right measure. The script is run by Iannucci himself, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with the collaboration of Peter Fellows.
