L'ape regina

Marco Ferreri France, 1963

José Neves's rating of the film The Conjugal Bed

35mm. The Italian cinema codes of the time, namely of comedy, still dominates which is Ferreri's second film, after a short, when he returned to Italy, after the frustrating experience with Spanish censorship. Even though already are revealed the thematic dominants of his future universe, are not the excessive baroque and metaphorical characteristics. Pitiless, demolishing family and Catholic religion.
