The Seduction of Mimi

"OK"

The Seduction of Mimi Review


This early Wertmüller work isn't among her best, and it's stuffed full of characters and scenes that would be written off as broad cliche today (complete with a raving mad Giancarlo Giannini, his hair flying wildly in every scene). But it's worth watching if for no other reason than to witness its eye-popping and horrifying final love scene, with Giannini "seducing" a very large housewife, in all her glory. It's hysterical and sad at the same time.

Aka Mimì metallurgico ferito nell'onore.
