Determined to continue where his friend left off, Tunin, a freckled peasant anarchist, arrives in Rome with the intention to assassinate Benito Mussolini. Under those circumstances, the resolute idealist will be welcomed in the town's first-rate brothel as the cousin of his contact, the devoted revolutionary, Salomè, who works there as a prostitute. However, things will soon get complicated, when Tunin who falls in love with one of the girls, the young Tripolina, will find himself on the verge of failure, torn between ideals and passion. Will the love-smitten patriot succeed in his cause?
Did You Know?
What are you waiting for? At the whorehouse, they wait in line to make love to Tripolina. Come on. Let's make love. Let's do it, and maybe you'll give me a present later. Come here! Take off your pants, quick. Stop looking at me with those eyes, those beautiful eyes. Get undressed. Let's make love without problems, without staring. I'm good. Come on!
Antonio Soffiantini 'Tunin'
Stop it, damn it! Stop. Listen... don't be like this. Everything becomes bad like this. It could be nice, couldn't it?
