Love and Anarchy

Rated R 120 minutes 1973

Passion, in its various forms, doesn't mix with politics, and nowhere is this clearer than in Lina Wertmüller's marvelous 1973 study of a simple peasant (Giancarlo Giannini) with a mission to assassinate Mussolini, and of the two ladies of Rome's most decadent and sumptuous brothel who innocently (yet destructively) manipulate his anarchist ardor—and ultimately set up his destruction. A giddy, Felliniesque portrait of human feelings building to a fever pitch. With Mariangela Melato, Eros Pagni, and Lina Polito. In Italian with subtitles.
