Temptation gets the better of morally ambiguous Neapolitan chancer Marino Pacileo (Italian star Tony Servillo) in director Stefano Incerti’s Gorbaciof (2010), the filmmaker’s follow-up to The Hush (2009). To celebrate the long-awaited home entertainment release of Incerti’s intriguing drama this coming Monday (25 November), we’ve kindly been provided with THREE finished DVD copies of Gorbaciof to give away to our devoted readers, courtesy of our friends at UK arthouse and world cinema distributor Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Marino (Servillo) is known to most of his friends and acquaintances as “Gorbaciof” thanks to a large red birthmark on his forehead that resembles that of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Gorbaciof works as a cashier at the Poggioreale prison in Naples; he’s used to handling large amounts of cash every day, which has a certain allure for a man with a taste for gambling. He also likes to play cards and begins frequenting a high-stakes poker game regularly staged by the proprietor of a Chinese restaurant (Hal Yamanouchi). Gorbaciof soon finds himself falling for the restaurateur’s daughter Lila (Mi Yang) and when her dad runs into financial trouble, he offers to help.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Gorbaciof on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

In which film did Toni Servillo recently star as Italian journalist Jep Gambardella? 

a) The Great Beauty
b) The Great Dictator
