Highly entertaining, witty, ...
Giannini is hilarious as a dim-witted hayseed anarchist, who, en route to assassinate Mussolini falls in love. An exuberant, vital, full throttle feast of a film, mostly set in a lusciously decadent Roman brothel, where Wertmuller, (who also wrote the very witty script) successfully directs the extraordinary (and excellently acted) characters through wild changes of mood, and juggles powerful politics, tender romance, horrible farce and tragedy with exceptional flair. Rotunno's photography is delicious; the unusually potent period atmosphere is splendidly captured by Enrico Job (Mr Wertmuller) and the music by Rota/Savina is perfect. Wertmuller at her most accessible.
