In 1930s Italy, Pasqualino (Giancarlo Giannini), a low-level Sicilian thug, kills a man who disgraced his sister. Pasqualino pleads insanity and manages to escape imprisonment by joining the military 

When he goes AWOL, he is imprisoned in a concentration camp. There, Pasqualino vows to do anything to survive  even if that means seducing a female German camp commandant (Shirley Stoler) or ratting out his own pals. 

With Seven Beautiesan art-house sensation on its release, Wertmüller became the first woman ever nominated for Best Director at the Academy Awards.  

The movie's absorbing and mysterious … [i]ts virtuoso style demonstrating once again Miss Wertmüller's mastery of filmmaking’ – Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times
