Yasmeen Gaber Profile picture for Yasmeen Gaber

Many a filmmaker has attempted to critique capitalist consumerist lifestyles, although no one was quite as prescient as Risi, who directed this black comedy at the height of Italy's Economic Miracle. Although perhaps simplistic in its fable-like approach to storytelling, this film is full of jolts of laughter, shock, and disgust that merit a few viewings.
