Repertory Series ArchiveSeven Beauties: The Films of Lina Wertmüller

Ferdinando & Carolina

Buy Tickets


(1999) dir Lina Wertmüller w/Sergio Assisi, Gabriella Pession [108 min; DCP]
A period piece as only Wertmüller could conceive – In the dazzling court of 18th century Naples, young King Ferdinando enters an arranged marriage with teenage Carolina. At first unwilling, the pair soon enter a rollicking, orgiastic celebration of the senses, and plunge with gusto into the silken bed sheets to uphold their regal duties – oblivious to the revolutionary tides that are on the verge of tearing Europe apart.
