Brutti, sporchi e cattivi (Ugly, Dirty and Bad) (New Restoration!)
dir. Ettore Scola, Italy, 1976, DCP, Italian w/ English subtitles, 116 min
Acclaimed Italian auteur Ettore Scola pairs up with legendary actor Nino Manfredi in this irreverent Cannes-winning comedy. Giacinto (Manfredi), along with four generations of his sprawling, crooked clan, lives in a cramped, dilapidated home on the outskirts of Rome. When a work accident leaves him blind in one eye, the derelict Giacinto suddenly finds himself rolling in insurance money. Refusing to share the wealth, Giacinto's relatives concoct several harebrained plots in hopes of wrenching the riches away.
