Love and Anarchy
aka Film d'amore e d'anarchia, ovvero 'stamattina alle 10 in via dei Fiori nella nota casa di tolleranza...'
First screened in May 2013
Director: Lina Wertmüller. Cast: Giancarlo Giannini, Lina Polito, Mariangela Melato, Eros Pagni, Pina Cei, Roberto Herlitzka, Giuliana Calandra, Isa Bellini. Screenplay: Lina Wertmüller.

Twitter Capsule: Synonyms? Antonyms? Wertmüller in roustabout, high-calorie form on hedgy assassin and the hookers he exasperates.

VOR:   Wertmüller's POV coming into full flush, minus compactness of Swept Away or earnestness of Seven Beauties. Unruly alternative to era's higher-gloss Conformists.
