BLU-RAY BOX SET INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING FILMS:
LOVE & ANARCHY: In pre-World War II Italy, the employees of a popular Roman bordello realize that a new arrival (Giancarlo Giannini, Hannibal, Casino Royale) is planning to assassinate Mussolini. When one of the girls (Lina Polito, All Screwed Up) falls in love with the man, she's torn between saving him and saving her country. This is the film that put Italian director Lina Wertmueller (Swept Away) on the map of world cinema. Giannini won a Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for his portrayal.
THE SEDUCTION ON MIMI: Voting against the Mafia in what he thinks is a secret ballot costs Sicilian laborer Mimi (Giancarlo Giannini, Man on Fire, Quantum of Solace) his livelihood in Lina Wertmuller's (Swept Away) dark comedy. He leaves his wife, flees to Turin and romances a Communist organizer (Mariangela Melato, Swept Away, Flash Gordon) -- but he just can't shake the Mafia. When they lure Mimi back to Sicily with a better job, he must keep his lover -- and love child -- under wraps. That's when his wife announces she's pregnant.
ALL SCREWED UP: All Screwed Up is the exuberantly funny tale about the often tragic adventures of a group of young immigrants who have come to Milan to make their fortunes. In addition to Adelina and Carletto, there are Gigi, who drifts into a life of petty crimes, Isotta, who becomes a prostitute, and Sante and Mariuccia, who marry in bliss and, in two years, are something less than blessed with seven children (one set of twins followed by quintuplets). They all soon discover that Milan is a town where everything is in its place but nothing is in order.
