Directed by Lina Wertmüller • 1986 • Italy
Starring Mariangela Melato, Michele Placido, Roberto Herlitzka
Mariangela Melato stars as Fulvia Bolk, a self-made tycoon interested in ecological preservation. She is fed up with the terrorists who are poaching Italy’s natural beauty, and as part of a crazy retaliation scheme she hires a former CIA agent to abduct the number-one violator, Giuseppe “Beppe” Catania and hold him for ransom. Outrageous reversals ensue in this dizzying farce, one of Lina Wertmüller’s most irreverent films.
