LOVE & ANARCHY
FILM D'AMORE E D'ANARCHIA
1973, Kino Lorber, 125 min, Italy/France, Dir: Lina Wertmüller

Lina Wertmüller and her co-stars from SWEPT AWAY, Giancarlo Giannini and Mariangela Melato, reteam for a brilliant drama about a simple-hearted assassin who comes to Rome to kill Mussolini, only to fall in love with a vulnerable young prostitute. Wertmüller turns Salome's whorehouse into a stunning metaphor for Italy in the late 1930s - a house riddled with compromise and intrigue, rouged and painted on the outside but bleeding on the inside.
