Synopsis

Pasqualino is a petty thief who lives off of the profits of his seven sisters, when he is arrested for murder and sent to fight in the army. The Germans capture him and he gets sent to a concentration camp where he plots to make his escape by seducing a German officer.

Our take

Here is the seminal film that made Lina Wertmüller the first woman to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director. Genuinely shocking in mood and subject matter, Seven Beauties is an extravagant and revelatory film about the many ways in which the petty bourgeoisie can disgrace themselves.
