The Basilisks (1963)

Lina Wertmüller directs Antonio Petruzzi, Stefano Satta Flores and Sergio Ferranino in this slice of life drama where the restless but feckless young men of an Italian small town attempt to find their way with little effort or success.

A tribute to Fellini’s I Vitteloni that embraces the ugliness of provincial life even more. The results are a little whimsical but there are some strikingly inventive camera moves.
