LOVE AND ANARCHY
(Linda Wertmuller, 1973)
Giancarlo Giannini plays an anarchist who stays
at a Roman brothel while waiting to assassinate
Mussolini. Moriangela Melato gives an hyster-
ically funny performance as his contact. Vivid
picture of Italy in the Thirties. Wertmuller,
who used to work for Fellini and who also di-
rected THE SEDUCTION OF MIMI, makes this
movie fast and funny. "Extravagant and oper-
atic"-THE NEW YORKER. Italian with Eng-
lish subtitles.
