Adrenaline and irony are the ingredients of this film signed by Armando Testa for Riva, the iconic Italian luxury yachting brand.

The short film is a tribute to the British television series "The Persuaders”. As in the original film played on the ironic duality of Tony Curtis and Roger Moore, this spot also features two exceptional characters: Pierfrancesco Favino and David Beckham.
Summoned on a pretext to an elegant seaside resort, the two find themselves racing each other driving sports cars and two beautiful Riva boats, until they reach a Custom Line super yacht.
Waiting for them at their destination for a truly unimaginable reason is a third exceptional protagonist: Formula One champion Charles Leclerc.
Following the great success of "Riva in the Movie", filmed with Favino himself in Venice in 2020 and presented at the 77th Venice Film Festival, the short film was directed by director Federico Brugia, produced by Armando Testa Studios and premiered at the La Fenice Theatre in Venice to celebrate 180 years of the Riva brand and 60 years of Aquarama, the brand's iconic product.
