Cannes 1972 - Best Director: Lina Wertmuller

Product Description:

A hilarious political and sexual farce in which a hardheaded Sicilian laborer finds himself in a heap of trouble both inside and out of his house when he refuses to support his local Mafia candidate in an election. His stubborn refusal to budge on his position ultimately costs him his job, his wife, and a see-it-to-believe-it encounter with a rather large woman. The 1977 U.S. remake, "Which Way Is Up'," starred Richard Pryor in the title role. This film garnered Wertmuller the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Plot Synopsis:

Mimi, a hardworking laborer, is the Sicilian macho Everyman. All he desires is a happy personal life -- unfortunately reality intervenes. Mimi can't decide between the Mafia and the Communists in his town, and somehow manages to offend the political powers that be and loses his job. Then, not satisfied with his wife, Mimi takes a lover. In turn, his wife also takes a lover. This, of course, is unacceptable to Mimi and he turns into a monster of revenge.
