Showtimes & Tickets

Screened April 23–24, 2017

One of Wertmüller’s handsomest productions, detailing the life (and death) of King Ferdinand of Naples, here dramatized as another of her sex-crazed heroes. He reminisces of his days as a young philanderer, lamenting his impending marriage to 16-year-old Carolina of Austria—until they discover their shared taste for libertine pleasures.

In Italian with English subtitles.

A film by Lina Wertmüller
