I Pugni In Tasca (1965) Claustrophobia within a family. On a rural estate live three brothers, a sister, and their blind, religious mother. Three of the siblings have epilepsy, the fourth and eldest, Augusto does not, and he's about to break away from the family: he's in love with Lucia and planning to move to the city. Augusto's sister Guilia clumsily tries to frustrate the lovers, while another brother, Alessandro, hatches a far-reaching plot to free himself of his mother's demands and other family responsibilities, to give Augusto the wherewithal to leave with Lucia, and, perhaps, to pursue incestuous impulses with his sister. Does anything stand in his way?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Alessandro: I'm a volcano of ideas.
Movie Trivia:
  • The role of Alessandro was initially offered to Itlian pop singer Gianni Morandi, later declining at the advice of his father and manager.
  • Director Marco Bellocchio borrowed money from his family to be able to make this film, which is actually a frontal assault on family values.
  • The film premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival. It was loved by young critics, loathed with equal passion by the Catholic establishment and earned huffy put-downs from Luis Bu˝uel and Michelangelo Antonioni, two heroes of director Marco Bellocchio.
  • The house, the film's main location, is the house director Marco Bellocchio spent his childhood days in.
