Director: Lina Wertmüller Composer: Nino Rota, Carlo Savina With: Giancarlo Giannini, Mariangela Melato, Eros Pagni, Pina Cei
In 1930s Italy, sad-faced, freckled peasant Tunin comes to Rome to kill Mussolini. He has anarchist connections and his contact in Rome is Salome, a lively flapper and popular professional at the bordello where she lives. She introduces him as her cousin, gives him access to the brothel, and helps him prepare for the assassination, scheduled a few days after his arrival. Within a day, he has fallen in love with Tripolina, one of the younger prostitutes. Tunin does the madam a favor, and, in exchange, Tripolina gets two days off to spend with him. How will this love affair, Salome's political will, and the assassination plans play out?
