The Seduction of Mimi

Mimì metallurgico ferito nell'onore

Directed by Lina Wertmüller
Italy, 1972
Comedy, Erotica


Giancarlo Giannini, Wertmüller’s actor of choice, gives a wonderfully comic performance as the sad sack “Mimi”, a Sicilian laborer whose refusal to vote for the Mafia’s candidate leads him to lose his job, his wife and his home—before finding love with a beautiful radical.
