Product Description:

The work of acclaimed Italian filmmaker Lina Wertmüller saw her rise to become the first female director to be nominated for an Oscar. Never afraid to tackle some controversial subject matter, Wertmüller has garnered an impressive reputation in the business. This collection gathers five of her films together, including:

SWEPT AWAY: An Italian film which traces the relationship that develops between a rich, selfish woman and a slovenly sailor when they become shipwrecked.

SEVEN BEAUTIES: Giancarlo Giannini portrays Pasqualino, a suave, street wise Italian hood who uses his wits in order to survive World War II and a Nazi prison camp. Lina Wertmuller's acclaimed film successfully shifts tone several times, from comic to tragic, from drama to romance to action, always keeping a delicate balance. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Actor--Giancarlo Giannini, Best (Original) Screenplay.

SUMMER NIGHT: A self-made tycoon interested in ecological preservation is fed up with the terrorists who poach Italy's rich beauty. As part of a crazy scheme to retaliate, she hires a former CIA agent to abduct the number one violator and demands $100 million for his return she ends up with more comedy than caper.

Also included are THE NYMPH and FERDINANDO AND CAROLINA.
