1973 | DCP | ITALY | D: Lina Wertmüller  

In fascist Italy in the 1930s, Tunin (Giancarlo Giannini), a young anarchist, is sent to assassinate Mussolini.  

Tunin’s contact in Rome arranges for him to stay at a brothel until he can commit the crime. But living in the company of prostitutes, like Salomè (Mariangela Melato), can be very distracting. Love and politics do not always mix well  

Winner of the Best Actor prize (for Giancarlo Giannini) at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival. 
 
‘Passionate and stirring … Miss Wertmuller has illustrated [the film] with enough power and style to make it memorable and often moving’ – The New York Times
