Very funny comedy with (hidden) political content
6 January 2001 | by (Basel) – See all my reviews

In this film, Marcello Mastroianni plays a rich guy who wants to spend a well "Dirty Weekend" with his young girlfriend. He gets kidnapped by a gang of communists (led by a guy with a heavy German accent) who just robbed a bank. What's gonna happen now? Is his family gonna give the communists (called "terrorists" by the media) the ransom? Is the rich guy gonna play hero and succeed? "Dirty Weekend" is a very funny comedy with an attitude, a comedy that has something to say about the role the media play, about the state and last but not least about capitalism. Check it out!
