      Seven Beauties  

      Lina Wertmüller’s extremely provocative hit from 1975 gave Giancarlo Giannini the role of his career as Pasqualino, a supreme amoralist who ends up as, among other things, the sex toy of a Nazi commandant. Seven Beauties kicks off a monthlong retrospective of the Italian filmmaker’s work at the Cinematheque, on Friday (September 8).
