A rare example of human cruelty...
18 May 2001 | by (Sciacca, Italy) – See all my reviews

Can the human greed make use of a woman as well as Antonio Focaccia does? Well, Marco Ferreri says it does!

The plot: a man, Antonio Focaccia (played by Ugo Tognazzi), meets a woman, Maria (played by Annie Girardot), full of hair on her body. Antonio makes Maria to become a freak to earn a lot of money, and he gets married with her, too. Their business have a great success, but......

I was struck by Antonio's cruelty and wickedness and by ability of Marco Ferreri to get ahead with plot.

A good movie.
