Seven Beauties is a 1975 Italian production, written and directed by Lina Wertmüller and starring Giancarlo Giannini, Fernando Rey, and Shirley Stoler. Written by Wertmüller, the film is about an ordinary Italian man from Naples who deserts the Italian Royal Army during World War II. He is then captured by the Germans and is sent to a concentration camp, where he is willing to do everything to survive. Through flashbacks, we learn about his family of seven unattractive sisters, his accidental murder of one sister's lover, his imprisonment in an insane asylum—where he rapes a patient—and his volunteering to be a soldier to escape confinement.
