Synopsis

Tunin, a freckle-faced farm boy, becomes an accidental anarchist and is sent to kill Mussolini. His contact in Rome is Salomè, a prostitute with her own sob story. While they prepare for the assassination, Tunin falls in love with Tripolina, which threatens the entire operation.

Our take

A former Fellini disciple, an infamous hellraiser, and the first woman to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar, Lina Wertmüller is a marvel. This sharp satire on fascism—in resplendently muted colors and lush period details—is an assassination thriller that shifts into wild, delicious burlesque.
