Description

Wertmüller's crowning achievement takes the Chaplinesque tendency in her work - the melding of the comic and tragic - to its furthest and most dangerous extreme. Giannini is unforgettable as Pasqualino, the wily Neapolitan anti-hero who manages to awaken our deepest sympathies, suspicions and eventually horror as he tries to charm his way out of series of scandalous situations, culminating notoriously in a Nazi concentration camp. An international smash hit, Seven Beauties was nominated for four Oscars - best director, actor, screenplay and foreign language film.
