I've been remembering this movies since 1993,but mishaps by its french title "les napolitaines",I couldn't see it again, nor could i check for the filmmaker. Libera is dark comedy composed of 3 short movies in the very fine humor of the classical Italian movies. The best short of the movie is the adventure of Libera (Laia Forte) who owns a kiosk in Naples suburbs while her husband is playing sick in their house cheating on her with girls. Selling by mistake the peeping tom movie she made of her husband and his mistress will change her fate. But the other shorts, "Aurora" and "Carmela" are equally good.
Now that I know all the other movies of Pappi Corsicato, I'm going to order them as well. To be store between "I vitelloni" and "I mostri"
