What's the film about?
Underground film from the 1968 era, clearly influenced by pop art (the color scheme is very Mario Schifano-like) and Warhol's works. The film lacks any kind of storyline, being made up of monologues by such popular characters as Frankenstein's monster, King Kong, Mona Lisa and Bloody Countess Bathory, and these fragments convey an apocalyptic view of our culture, where ideology, religion and love are definitely dead. Great casting, especially for the unforgettable Viva/Bene duet.

...if you want to discover one of our most important underground filmmakers.
