Seven Beauties
Nominated for four Academy Awards® including Best Director, Seven Beauties stars Giancarlo Giannini (Swept Away) as Pasqualino Frafuso, known in Naples as "Pasqualino Seven Beauties." A petty thief who lives off of the profits of his seven sisters while claiming to protect their honor at any cost, Pasqualino is arrested for murder and later sent to fight in the army after committing sexual assault. The Germans capture him and he gets sent to a concentration camp where he plots to make his escape by seducing a German officer.

"Intriguing...absorbing and mysterious" - Roger Ebert

"Nominated for five Oscars, "Seven Beauties" remains a singular example of women's cinema grappling with the tattered shreds of war to get at otherwise unspoken truths." Cole Smithey

"Lina Wertmüllers Seven Beauties antagonizes us from the start of its opening montage of archival WWII footage, in which a narrator sardonically repeats the phrase oh, yeah throughout a series of political proclamations, all of them highlighting Europes inability to reconcile the cycles of violence and degradation that have plagued its nations throughout the 20th century. Confrontational and uncompromising, the narration instantly roots the film historically in the 1940s while also introducing Wertmüllers irreverent reconciliation of Italian history and contemporary sexual politics." Slant Magazine
