louis vuitton leather goods Brutti e cattivi Ugly Nasty People
Papero, Ballerina, Merda and Plissé have a shot at robbery, hoping to pull off a heist that will change their lives forever. It doesn’t matter that the former has no legs and Ballerina, his very beautiful wife, has no arms, that Merda is a drug addicted Rasta and Plissé a dwarf rapper. These are just details. For them there are no obstacles, only dreams.
Even though, after the robbery, things get complicated: every member of the unlikely band seems to have hatched a plan to keep the loot for themselves. Everyone steals from everyone else, showing no pity in a flurry of chases, bloody vendettas, gory executions and mutual betrayals.
The underlying theme of Brutti e cattivi is equality. The whole film revolves around the “rule” that any human being can be cynical and ruthless regardless of his or her appearance. Brutti e cattivi is an action comedy that breaks the mold, in which a bunch of luckless and vicious but shrewd and daring scoundrels pull off an ingenious heist. That’s not all: we see them having sex, offending and being offended, killing and being killed, in a whirlwind of events. But it is not a realistic film. It is a film that, walking a tightrope between the true and the plausible, aims to attain a dimension that is at once lyrical and entertaining.
