Rarities (past events)Repertory Series ArchiveSeven Beauties: The Films of Lina Wertmüller

The Seduction of Mimi

Buy Tickets


(1972) dir Lina Wertmüller w/Giancarlo Giannini, Mariangela Melato, Agostina Belli [112 min; DCP]
THE SEDUCTION OF MIMI is a raucous sex comedy that brought international fame to director Wertmüller. A blistering satire of Italy in the 1970s, the film takes aim at a corrupt government, compromised labor leaders and the Neanderthal sexual politics of men in power, with uproarious results.

“Sexual hypocrisies and political dilemmas rarely flow smoothly onto the screen. But Lina Wertmüller excels in conveying both in The Seduction of Mimi, … one of the finest films of this season.” – Nora Sayre, New York Times

“ROLLICKING FUN! For laughter, latch onto ‘The Seduction of Mimi’.” – Judith Christ, New York Magazine

“Deep wild humor… hilarious… one of the year’s ten best.” – Time Magazine

“A wonderfully funny sexual farce.” – The New Yorker
