Movie Info

Down & Dirty was originally titled Brutti, sporchi e cativi in Italy. That translates literally to "dirty, nasty and bad", in reference to the lower-class characters and surroundings in this Ettore Scola film. Scola zeroes in on a particularly offensive Roman family. The stingy patriarch, Nino Manfredi, is personally wealthy but morally bankrupt, and his repulsive view of life trickles down to every member of his clan. Not content with corrupting his own flesh and blood, Manfredi spreads his philosophy throughout his village, where he functions as slumlord. By the time Manfredi's wife and sons begin plotting his murder, the audience is ready for a long, cold shower, with plenty of soap. A bleak film heavily laden with humor, Down & Dirty won Ettore Scola a Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival.more

Audience Reviews for Brutti, Sporchi e Cattivi (Ugly, Dirty and Bad) (Down and Dirty)

Manfredi reigns amongst thieves (and mischievous dodgers,hehe) and Scola enchants the audience regardless of political correctness or conventional goofs.Wacko families will never stop eating each other's flesh and not even adultery shall prevent Giacinto from conducting his greedy anarchy.
