One of my all-time favorites; just watched it again yesterday for the umpteenth time. Set in Fascist Italy, it stars Giancarlo Giannini as Pasqualino, a greasy two-bit mafioso with seven ugly sisters -- which, for some reason, has earned him the nickname "Seven Beauties" -- and just the kind of empty-headed loser who is convinced he's cool. He's an adorably sleazy fool who believes he is God's gift to women and that he is feared by all because he carries a gun and walks through town with a ridiculous swagger. A staunch believer in family honor, he murders the pimp who has turned out one of his sisters, an act that leads him first to jail, then a mental institution, and finally a Nazi concentration camp, where he desperately tries to seduce the big fat ugly broad who runs the place. War, no respecter of honor, makes a whore of everyone. Dark, disturbing, and rather controversial upon release -- it was written and directed by a feisty little Italian woman whose outlook was anything but feminist -- it's one of the most politically incorrect war movies ever made.
