Lina Wertmüller: Five Beauties. New Digital Restoration!
Italy | 1975 | Lina Wertmüller
Being the adventures of a small-time crook and ladies’ man who, after killing a pimp, spends time in an insane asylum, the Italian army, and a German concentration camp. Giancarlo Giannini, Fernando Rey, and Shirley Stoler star in this grotesque picaresque, a farcical survival epic that was hailed upon its release as Wertmüller’s masterpiece. This movie earned Wertmüller the first-ever Best Director Oscar nomination for a female filmmaker. “Seven Beauties is the great one, the Eureka film, in which Wertmüller takes the kind of risks that major artists take and puts things together that have never been put together before.” –Newsweek. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 116 min.
