A Sicilian woman is dishonored by her lover, then goes to London with a pistol intending to murder him. In the capital, she sheds her country-girl image for a mod makeover to fit into London’s high society and catches the eye of a British doctor.
Monica Vitti in a revenge farce set in 1960s Britain? It happened! The Italian icon plays a wronged woman seeking justice and independence in this whimsical culture-clash comedy. Examining the bonds of cultural repression, The Girl with a Pistol evolves into a touching tale of female emancipation.
