Love & Anarchy
Monday, December 4
In the first of Wertmüller’s films to open in America, Tunin, a naive farmboy drawn into an anarchist conspiracy in Fascist-era Italy, must meet with his contact Salomè, the madam of a high-end Roman brothel. His mission: to assassinate Benito Mussolini. When Tunin falls in love with the prostitute Tripolina, the plot is jeopardized in this subversive tragicomedy that plays the human need for connection against the forces of political oppression and extremism.
1973 · d. Lina Wertmüller
Starring Giancarlo Giannini, Mariangela Melato, Eros Pagni
