Boccaccio 70

Boccaccio 70

A bigot obsesses over the gigantic poster of a voluptuous pin-up, a married woman finds a way of dealing with her husband’s passion for call-girls, a sacristan wins a night with a beautiful fairground woman in a village lottery and a married couple’s mishap enables them to buy their own house. Four of the greatest Italian directors – Fellini, Visconti, De Sica and Monicelli – join forces with show-stoppers Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg and Romy Schneider in a carousel of sex and satire mocking the mores of Italian 60’s society…

Four arresting tales of women’s empowerment and the sexual revolution in Italy’s 1960s boom years. This light-hearted hymn to life is presented for the first time in both English and original Italian, with  improved subtitles, and shown here as originally intended by the filmmakers in the original widescreen film format – now in restored HD.
