"Ferdinando and Carolina"
Directed by Lina Wertmuller
Wertmuller's hilarious take on the life of King Ferdinand stars Sergio
Assisi as the 18th century monarch and Gabriella Pession as Maria
Carolina, a formidable lover and tireless nag. Directed with the Italian
filmmaker's signature verve, the film is at once a lavish period piece and
a sly sex comedy. Italian with English subtitles.
