Love & Anarchy

Buy Tickets

love-and-anarchy-5

(1973) dir Lina Wertmüller w/Giancarlo Giannini, Lina Polito, Mariangela Melato [129 min; DCP]
An epic tragicomedy, LOVE AND ANARCHY plumbs the depths of fascist Italy from the perspective of a simple farm boy sent to kill Mussolini. A film of operatic emotion and subversive comedy, LOVE AND ANARCHY is a powerful statement on the terror of fascism and the ignoble fates of those who challenged it.

“Breathtaking… executed with the high-pitched passion of a gothic romance with a fluid, whirling, dazzling energy.” – Newsweek

“A film of extraordinary vigor and force, possessed of boldness and ferocity.” – New York Daily News
