Screened April 16–27, 2017

A wistful romance turned raunchy sex comedy, this searing take on sexual and political double standards finds laborer Giancarlo Giannini ricocheting between mafiosa and the union—as well as between his apparently frigid wife and beguiling mistress Mariangela Melato. In Wertmüller’s world, the bedroom is the only appropriate battleground for revenge—for men and women alike.

In Italian with English subtitles.
