Lina Wertmüller: Five Beauties. New Digital Restoration!
MIMÌ METALLURGICO FERITO NELL'ONORE
Italy | 1972 | Lina Wertmüller
When a secret ballot at work turns out to be not so secret, a simple Southern Italian laborer (Giancarlo Giannini) who just wants to provide for his family suddenly finds himself caught between the local Mafia and the Communist party. His world is turned upside down. This farcical comedy, loosely remade in America as the Richard Pryor vehicle Which Way Is Up?, marked the first time that Wertmüller worked on screen with her frequent regulars Giannini and Mariangela Melato. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 112 min.
