Synopsis

At the fictitious ‘University of Borbona’ in ‘Sicula’, Sicily, nepotism reigns supreme. It is an establishment where teachers sell exams, and hire only their friends and relatives. The University Dean, played by Luca Zingaretti (Perez IFF15), allows all manner of wheeling and dealing from students, in order to attain good grades. It’s far from meritocracy or a quality education.
TV comedian Roberto Lipari makes his big screen debut as Roberto, the Dean’s son and a student at the university, who flies through classes with top marks thanks to his father. No student can overturn the status quo, until Roberto decides to go against his family. With the help of his friends he fights the system and creates a revolutionary smartphone app which allows students to evaluate their professors,
thus inverting the balance of power.
Based on news items, friends’ stories and the screenwriter’s personal experience as a university assistant, director Gianni Costantino’s second feature film LetsCleanApp is an intelligent comedy about favouritism and corruption featuring a spirited cast.
