Swept Away: The Films of Lina Wertmüller
(NR) Italy – 1 hr 45 min – with subtitles
1974 · d. Lina Wertmüller   Reviews
Starring Luigi Diberti, Lina Polito, Nino Bignamini

Country boys Gigi and Carletto arrive in Milan in search of fortune, only to find their dreams waylaid in the absurd and impossible rat race of urban life. Simultaneously an antic slapstick comedy, a poignant social drama, and a bawdy farce, Wertmüller’s whirlwind satire follows these misfits and their friends through work, crime, romance, and the rest of the turbulent forces of life in the Italian working class.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Swept Away: The Films of Lina Wertmüller, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
