Nothing Works Everything Ready Movie Review

lina wertmuller

This early Lina Wertmuller film is a fast, occasionally funny yarn about how some young Sicilian men and women make a start in Northern Italy (Milan, to be specific), even though they have no money and are constantly being victimized. There is one semi-rape sequence. The victim loves it. Wert-muller shows the moment, then lets it go without comment. She would explore sexual politics in much greater depth in 1975's Swept Away….<img1.5>
