SOTTO … SOTTO
SOTTO … SOTTO … STRAPAZZATO DA ANOMALA PASSIONE
1984, 105 min, Italy, Dir: Lina Wertmüller

Director Lina Wertmüller’s rarely seen comedy uses sex as a metaphor for self-discovery - and punctures Italian machismo in the process. Ester (Veronica Lario) finds herself attracted to newly divorced friend Adele (Luisa De Santis) and confesses her love to husband Oscar (Enrico Montesano), who searches frantically for his rival, never suspecting it’s a woman. In Italian with English subtitles.


THE FAMILY
CITTÀ VIOLENTA
1970, 100 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Sollima

Killer Charles Bronson is chased by double crossers while on a vacation with main squeeze Jill Ireland and, after mucho mayhem, left for dead. But Bronson re-emerges from prison to hunt through the New Orleans underworld for his traitorous comrades. He gets more than he bargained for, running into duplicitous Ireland and her new hubby, mob boss Telly Savalas, who wants to hire Bronson - and won’t take no for an answer. “One stylish action scene after another…whipped into a frenzy by Ennio Morricone's shredded electro soundtrack...” - Grady Hendrix, New York Sun.
