The Boom

Comedy 1h 28m 1963

A Sweet-sour comedy set during the 60’s economic boom of Italy, where a man tries desperately to maintain a high standard of living for his frivolous wife. Heavily in debt, he agrees to an extreme solution involving selling part of his body.

From director Vittorio De Sica (THE BICYCLE THIEF) this is a tragicomic portrayal of Italy’s post-war resurgence, with a touch of implied body horror to keep you awake.
