Mimì is a Sicilian laborer whose refusal to vote for the Mafia’s candidate leads him to lose his job, his home and his wife. He then starts a new life in Turin, where he falls in love with the beautiful, radical Fiorella. But the past comes back to haunt him, bringing him back to his biggest obsession: defending his honor, causing horrendous but hilarious consequences.
A fervent satire of Italy in the 1970s, The Seduction of Mimì takes aim at a corrupt government, compromised labor leaders and the sexist politics of men in power, with very entertaining results.
