Synopsis

A young bank clerk, denied a loan by his employer, decides to exact his revenge on the local butcher who is one of the bank’s star customers. Quitting his job, the clerk devotes his time tormenting the butcher, stealing his possessions one-by-one, including his mistress.

Our take

In this final installment of Petri’s so-called “Trilogy of Neurosis,” social satire has never looked so deliriously psychedelic and sexy. Mirroring the fetishization of both capitalism and the female body, Ugo Tognazzi and Daria Nicolodi give their sleazy best amidst the extravagantly staged sets.
